The Series: "Lost Romance" has been awarded a 2nd place in it's category by the International Photography Awards 2019 (IPA 2019)
In my travels, I came across a number of abandoned ballrooms in former East Germany. What attracted me was their romantic atmosphere and faded beauty. From the stage, you can almost reach out and touch the romance. This led me to choose a uniform perspective throughout the series. Always from the stage into the room. This proved more dangerous than it sounds. The stage areas were often unstable, sometimes covered in collapsed roofing, or destroyed entirely. Still, I stuck to my vision.
