Jonathan Suykens practices 'urban exploring': visiting and photographing buildings and environments that are usually not open to the public.


'The aim is to make people aware of past glory', explains Suykens.







'Every day you cycle past isolated buildings or slums, knowing that these used to be gems of buildings.' And they may still be.


With these photos, relive a part of Suykens' last voyages of discovery: first and foremost the dilapidated factory of Nassau, rusted and burned, then the looted Goorhof castle, a new 'home' for squatters, drug addicts, satan worshipers and Nazi sympathizers, and finally an abandoned old farm.
