Daan Oude Elferink is a true explorer who shows the glory and beauty of abandoned places in his photography. He acquired his first camera in 2009, and it became the instrument of a genuine quest for the essence of the past. Fascinated by urban exploration, Daan was quickly attracted to the silent beauty of desolation, which he skilfully transposes in his shots.
In forbidden places like castles, hospitals, villaâ€™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 decades. 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.
Daan Oude Elferink's sensibility shows through his works, whose unusual atmospheres mysteriously attract the viewer. The promise of a wonderful journey opens in front of the artist's lens, and we are invited to follow him on his journey.
