EERIE images reveal incredible art work rediscovered in an abandoned 1960s house frozen in time throughout the years.
Other pictures show the intact state of the time capsule house from a dining room filled with a mix of portrait and landscape painting to an untouched lounge, a dimly-lit bedroom with carefully composed painting spread all over, and a loft used to store even more paintings.
Captured in Belgium on the borders of Germany by urban explorer, Frank Mirgel (43), on a Canon EOS 600D with 10mm – 18mm wide-angle lens, these photographs display what is believed to be the former home of an art collector.
“On the way to these abandoned locations I inwardly become nervous as I do not know what will come out of it or what I will encounter,” said Frank.
“Outside on the street of the house is modern day, but inside the décor is a mix of 40s, 50s and 60s.
“I love the smell of decay and I’m really fascinated by what people leave behind as well I usually ask myself, “what fate has taken place here?””
Despite the desolate status of the art-infused house, it appears to be in a tidy condition, complete with a still-working electricity supply.
“Sometimes you get to the location and it is easy to get in, but at times access is hard and you have to climb your way in,” said Frank.
“With my pictures I like to show other just what’s available in these wonderfully abandoned places.
“It is simply a passion of mine and each location tells a story of its own.”
