I took my old and tired camera, I left for my very first exploration. I fell in love with this incredible sanatorium, I fell in love with photography, I fell in love with urbex. All this within a few hours. The picture quality is what it is, but it does have a strong sentimental value…. This will remain my best experience. A new page has turned … the beginning of a passion.
Urbex project, next part. First of all, I go exploring, I make my photos, and only after that I try to document and find old photographs to see if some elements coincide … That’s kind of a reverse way to do things. I work like that in order not to be influenced by the angle, the atmosphere or history of the place. I usually discover all of this after my exploration, while I’m doing my research. And I want to attune items I find there, and slices of life, rather than to identical shots of the same place, at two different times. Thus, the picture below does not represent exactly what I want to develop… But when I came across this old picture of the sanatorium that I visited, the opportunity was too good, even if the framing isn’t the same. The previous parallel is much more representative of the line that I want to follow : bit.ly/1lpjQl3 .
