Werner Schijvenaars Photography
Me @ an abandoned monastery

    An abandoned factory, A derelict theater building an once glorious and proud city in decline,broken doors and peeling paint. Almost forgotten traces of human presence. Where most people have an eerie feeling I see its beauty.
    Photography gives me access to locations which turned into a no-go areas. I sneak past the guards, or burrow under the fences, to slip into a location, take photographs and then sneak out again.
    I'm a historian freak who uses photography as a technique to explore and capture a piece of history

    Sometimes alone, sometimes with models to reinforce the image. I am always looking for unique places and make my photos throughout Europe.I accept no restrictions about my equipment, and use various techniques to accomplish that one shot. Bags full of equipment are necessary and not everything comes back in one piece (including myself).
