Information / Abandoned & Forgotten:

Jan Stel (Purmerend, the Netherlands) is a self-taught Fine Art Photographer and Photoshop Artist. He explores the abandoned places of our times, a forgotten world where mankind has disappeared. The mixture of fascinating history, absence of mankind and curiosity about our beautiful world of decay is the photographic essence. All of Stel his photography is made in pure natural light; no flashlights or studio lamps are used.

It was around 1998 that the fascination for “Abandoned & Forgotten” started. For more than 10 years, Jan Stel is committed to capture the remains of our past glory. Jan is sensitively capturing these characteristic places before they are eventually lost to time. And the memories they hold will become forgotten and fade away. Places that once hummed with life and movement stand silent and devoid of human presence.
