STUNNING images reveal the vulnerable beauty of abandoned cars that have been left to rust over the years.
The collection of spectacular images show how a Volkswagen Beetle, Citroën C2 and even a Ferrari have been taken over by nature and piles of rubble. In other shots, a Mercedes Benz is overgrown with ivy and an old-fashioned BMW has been left in a garage with a collapsing roof and debris on the floor.
A Ford vehicle has also been forgotten in the woods and one car even appears to have a tree growing from it.
The haunting images were taken by Belgian security guard, Kenneth Provost (31) at various locations across Germany and Belgium. To take the incredible shots, Kenneth used a Canon 6D camera and tripod.
“In my images, you can see that there is beauty in decay,” said Kenneth.
“I see memories and beautiful old cars which have a great history that has been long forgotten and hidden by nature.
“I love the thrill and silence when on location, it feels like you are muted to the outside world.
“When people see the photos for the first time, their mouths fall open and questions come to their minds.”
Despite the thrill, he gets when exploring abandoned places, Kenneth says that urban exploration can be risky.
“Urban exploration is a dangerous type of photography so it’s important that you don’t play with your life when you’re doing it,” he said.
