- ?Henk van Rensbergen is a Boeing 787 pilot who flies around the globe. While his crew rests at the swimming pool, he goes out to explore the abandoned places of our world. From a floating warship cemetery in France, a forgotten love hotel in Japan to a flooded theme park in New Orleans, Henk van Rensbergen searches for the beauty of their desolation and pinpoints the richness of their decay. Van Rensbergen is a pioneering Urban Explorer. His Abandoned Places photo books (1, 2, 3 and The Photographer's Selection) have been highly successful. This pocket size book shows his most iconic photos of the past 25 years, including some unpublished material and anecdotes.
