There is a little voyeur in all of us. Everyone likes to take a peek at things they weren’t meant to see. Dutch photographer Niki Feijen has made a living of ignoring ‘Do Not Enter’ signs to capture some amazing artwork.
Feijen’s new book, Disciple of Decay, features five years of urban exploration images from abandoned farmhouses and boarded up homes. The collection contains ghostly photographs of rooms frozen in time, looking as if the former owners could return at any moment. Beds made, shoes sitting beside a chair, even an antique baby stroller set beside a dirty, smeared window, never to be used again.
The entire series is not only eerie but a reminder of the frailty of life and how nature eventually absorbs the human footprint, no matter how deep it’s laid. Enjoy some of the images from Disciple of Decay below, and for more information and to order the book, visit the official Niki Feijen website.
