The spirit of abandoned places

Vanitas vanitatum, dixit Ecclesiastes, vanitas vanitatum et omnia vanitas*. – Ecclesiastes 1:2.

Dark and beautiful…Henk van Rensberge takes you away to haunted tour on left, forbidden ang forgotten places over the world.

Contemplating Henk’s work arouses strong – and mixed – emotions. Poignant melancholy and sadness to see how time could erase everything, how huge projects, big dreams, intensely lived feelings fade away and leave nothing but stillness. Like “This too shall pass” on the ring of king Solomon.

But also profound serenity – life is constainly evolving, and even if nothing is eternal, we still have to launch huge projects, dream big, feel intensefully – in the transient consists the beauty. Life is a journey, where it finishes we all know, so we shall enjoy every mile.

To be bewitched further, do not hesitate to venture into

*Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
