These fascinating scenes caught me by her current serenity. It took a while before the misty feeling and the emission formed the composition that I was looking for. La Luna has always had a big attraction for me. Her beautiful light is magical and mysterious.

SOLD. Desolate Casino No.4 (160x118 cm and edition 01/03) found a lovely warm home.
In Romenia there is a charming but desolate casino from the time of Ceaușescu. The casino is located on a cliff and surrounded by a beautiful promenade overlooking the sea. Both the interior and exterior show the remains of an turbulent and majestic history. There are so many details to enjoy: the beautiful refined shapes and structures and the subtleties of the color palette used. A true beauty and warp back in time!

At the edge of industrial areas are high fences that are often surrounded by systematically planted trees and shrubs to keep out trespassers. In most cases the vegetation on the site is struggling with emissions from production. And local residents are also regularly concerned about the affects of production emissions. But nature will always find ways to adapt and survive from the self-centered behavior of humanity through the ages.
“Just before sunrise and sunset, the light is at its most beautiful. There is something magical about this short period of time. The cinematic feeling of industrial locations is what I capture. Their natural surroundings is where my eyes focus on.” - Jan Stel
