ABANDONED & FORGOTTEN:
Jan Stel [Purmerend - The Netherlands] is a self taught photographer and Photoshop artist. As a way of exploring and understanding life’s moments, he began taking pictures in his twenties. In attempting to know why a subject moves us, Jan moved through a phase where he created fanciful and artistic graffiti murals, detailed drawings and realistic illustrations.

For more than 10 years Jan is capturing the fascinating remains of humanity’s past glory. Over the years it continues to astound him what the industry has left abandoned in giant structures. Old craft business, antiquated machinery, tools and equipment look as if they were turned off and walked away from. Private houses loaded with personal belongings, outdated transport and even fully decorated castles. A thirty year old never used subway system with on/off light switches from station to station that still work! Places that once thrived with life and movement, but now stand silent and void of human life. Jan explains that where others see filth, waist and hazardous decay, he sees much more. “Silenced by men, it is now the subtle and quiet power of mother nature that reclaims this lonely world. Jan states, “Abandoned and seemingly soulless places” are still full of history. Each location are like treasure chests waiting to be rediscovered.
