Dan Marbaix is a brave photographer who explores abandoned buildings and photographs them. He’s photographed everything from abandoned churches, hospitals, schools, and hotels. The pictures Marbaix takes in these abandoned buildings are mesmerizing, but they come at cost.
Dan Marbaix has been arrested over 2o times for trespassing, and held at gun point once. But he loves what he does, and that pushes him to keep doing it. In the images below we see the abandoned sites that Dan visits. It’s eerie to think about how these places used to be full of life, and now they’re just empty. It’s beautiful and sad at the same time, and I’m glad there are photographers like Dan Marbaix who can immortalize these places in photos before they get torn down.
