Romain Veillon (1983-) est un photographe français spécialisé dans la visite de lieux abandonnés : l’urbex. Il capte l’ambiance surannée d’espaces urbains en décrépitude, où la nature reprend peu à peu place. Romain Veillon fait ses gammes en autodidacte, il commence par photographier différents endroits délaissés autour de la petite ceinture parisienne. Cette passion se prolonge dans ses voyages à travers le monde. Par ses photographies Romain Veillon établit un dialogue entre passé, présent et futur. Certains espaces ont poursuivis leur délabrement, d’autres ont été détruits, vandalisés ou restaurés. La photo devient le témoin d’une époque, le relevé optique d’un bâtiment à un moment T. Dans ces instantanés parfois post-apocalyptiques, le spectateur peut projeter une histoire fantasmée.
For this contest I would like to see your photographs of the inside of abandoned buildings which you have explored but have been forgotten. Please only show the inside of buildings that have been abandoned, not maintained ruins. The dirtier, creepier, and more forgotten, the better. Also, please make sure your photographs are taken inside the building.
We are Jade Stacy Maria & James Kerwin, an adventurous couple who met in early 2015. Firstly, I am James, a keen photographer who for the last 9 years is known for the interior and abandoned architecture fine art photography work, however, I have occasionally dabbled in taking portraits of Jade and others to practice the art of lighting and to assist Jade in the up-keep of her portfolio as a fashion and beauty model. Since 2014, Jade has taken modeling seriously, attempting to branch out and work with both amateur and professional photographers across the United Kingdom, starting from her base in the East of England.

Infrared filters are known for creating a weird, eerie mood in pictures, no matter what you’re capturing. That is why taking a filter like that to an already haunting-looking place like Chernobyl might make the scenery pictures you take look even more impressive. Photographer Vladimir Migutin did just that on his trip to the town in Ukraine that suffered the infamous nuclear disaster.

Somewhere near you, a building lies empty. There are no footsteps to be heard in the hallways. The abandoned possessions of previous occupants litter the floor like leaves on the street. Perhaps there’s some old machinery, or a grand stage that’s no longer the center of attention. All the light is natural, and the elements are slowly breaking down the shell around you.
