Dutch photographer Niki Feijen

I love old photographs. Throw in settings of abandoned farmhouses, waterparks, amusement parks, castles, even the ghost town known as Chernobyl, and I’m in awe of an artistic eye that has the ability to take decrepit, broken places and give them life. I 1 Chernobyl Classroomrecently came across Dutch photographer Niki Feijen’s work on Pinterest where pinners like Huffington Post and Mail Online uploaded his work. After visiting his website, I realized he’d also been featured on ABC News. The photo to the right is from a Chernobyl classroom that Mr. Feijen photographed in 2010. He published his first book, Disciple of Decay in 2013. His work is now displayed in art galleries and art fairs around the world. In September of 2014 his second book Frozen is slated for release. If you love old photos that capture a forgotten time, you’ll find his work tells a story. Or if you’re like me, you can use your imagination to create your own. Either way, I look forward to Mr. Feijen’s new book.
