Lost Time Capsule House
By Rebecca Drew
STUNNING images have revealed how one Belgian home has been left untouched with fixtures and fittings intact since it was left abandoned years ago.
The eerie shots show a dust ridden piano with sheet music still in place, a grimy dressing table with perfume bottles scattered and a singer sewing machine sits out of action. Other pictures show torn net curtains, peeling ceilings and unmade beds.
One image shows a sweeping spiral staircase where paintings line the descending walls.
The incredible shots were taken by urban explorer, Sascha Jung in a village near Namur, close to the river Maas, Belgium. To take the photographs, Sascha used a Canon EOS 70D Camera.
“This house cannot be seen from the street and you have to look very carefully to discover it,” said Sascha.
“Unfortunately, not very much is known about the history of the building or its owner but I think the photos speak for themselves.
“When people see the pictures, they get totally excited and can’t believe something like this exists.”
Sascha says that he loves the atmosphere and feeling of abandoned places and is careful not to reveal specific locations as he doesn’t want them to be vandalised.
“I love being in deserted locations, the silence because no one lives there anymore creates a great atmosphere,” he said.
“Places and objects tell a story which you can capture in a photo.
“Addresses in my scene are kept secret because we want people to leave everything as it is found and not destroy it.”
