Urban Exploring pictures from Provost Kenneth

The following Urban Exploring gallery was sent into us by Provost Kenneth. He's a 30-year-old Belgian from Ostende and he started doing Urbex shoots about 3 years ago.Provost first got interested in Urbex because of an old and abandoned stone factory in his neighbourhood. The thrill and excitement of being in a place that you were not supposed to be in and which was deserted convinced him that this was what he wanted to do in term of photography. He hopes that people who see his photos start imagining stories and events that could have taken place in those once busy locations, he wants to make them think of what could have been. Provost is working towards publishing his own book and he has a big exposition opening on July 3rd in Ter Yde in Ostende.
