Exploring, the beauty of the past; all else is left to imagination
For several years now, the Photographer and Musician MGness
has specialized in capturing the fascination of
abandoned (sub-)urban spaces with their aging charm and
glamour of forgotten times. In pursuit of the perfect moment and light,
he has travelled thousands of kilometers and
crossed numerous borders to seek out these untouched treasures.
The subjects in their aesthetic and romantic glory are intricately hidden,
and it takes his craving for adventure as well as patience,
diligence and perfectionism to carefully portray their
authentic and historic ambiance. MGness has fine-tuned
his perspective to depict these mythical places
of the world in a moving and dramatic light.
He makes us aware of their beauty and transience.
He discovers secret locations, which have been
mysteriously abandoned and left to succumb to nature;
their former hum perceptible, but now overcome by eerie tranquility.
He enables a glimpse at their potential story in his imagery – all else is left to imagination.
