Photographer Wigo Worsseling is an Urban Explorer and is always hunting for faded glory; an old premises of which the exterior screams to be explored and photographed inside. Is it abandoned? Can I get in? Is it safe and without any security on guard? An entrance is found, nothing indicates the presence of people. Walls are peeled, ceilings have collapsed, glass is on the floor and the stale smell of decaying wood enters your nose. Daylight tries to seep in and creates a spectacle of shadows. You wonder what it once has looked like. The camera is set up, the hunt is on!
It all started as an exciting adventure when Wigo Worsseling first visited an abandoned factory 10 years ago. Now, 200 locations on, he can look back on a period in which he had the privilege to enjoy the beauty of decay. In this book you will find a selection of his photographs taken in various European countries between 2009 and 2015.
