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

I like to photograph abandoned and decaying places a.k.a. urban exploring. My goal is to show the beauty and share the history of forgotten and decaying architectural structures. By photographing these places I’m trying to capture the visual history that otherwise will be lost.

Every place has its own interesting story. Visiting these places is just like stepping into a time machine and travel back in time. This is what interests me the most about the explores. Ever since my first visit to an abandoned place it got me hooked. Since then I’ve been travelling all over the world capturing these forgotten locations.

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?
