My name is Jeroen Taal. I’m a photographer from the Netherlands.

I like to photograph decayed matter. Architecture and artworks with historical meaning in particular. The degradation that is caused by time and nature intrigues me. By photographing these objects I’m trying to capture the visual history that otherwise would be lost. My other goal is to show the beauty and share the story of these decaying objects.

Every object has its own story. Sometimes it’s just like stepping out of a time machine that took you back in time. This is what interests me the most about the search for these decayed objects. Ever since my first explore it got me hooked. Since then I’ve been traveling all over the world capturing these the most interesting scenes.

Got curious? Take a look at my photo series to experience the world of abandonment and decay. I hope my work will be of interest to you.

Have a question?
