Daan Oude Elferink
Daan Oude Elferink is a true explorer who manages to show in his photography art works the glory and the beauty of abandoned places. In forbidden places like castles, hospitals, villa’s in decay, deserted industry facilities and forgotten cars, he brings back the light of those past days, mostly in Europe. The details of those historical buildings and more than anything else the life that had been lived there before our time…
Searching for a way to get in, sometimes through sewers, sometimes by climbing, trying to enter into buildings that have been closed and locked away from the public for decays. With the golden rule of not touching anything but just bringing out, with the click of his camera, the mystery and magic that is waiting there to be seen again…
“ I take the picture and all I leave behind are my footsteps ”
” Inside, I look for the artefacts that tell the story of the past ”
