has been photographing for more than 30 years and for the past few years she has been focussing on abandoned objects in Belgium, Italy, (Eastern) Germany and Luxembourg amongst others, so called urbex-photography (a.k.a. urban exploration).

All the love that man once invested in each rock and piece of marble is gone with the wind.
