Never wanted to know what’s behind that old wall in the city? Never wanted to see what’s happened to that old hospital that has been abandoned for years? Don’t see the beauty of decay, nature taking over the urban world?

Then you are probably not the type of person for urban exploring. If you are that person I hope you find inspiration here on my website.

My name is Andre Joosse, born in 1975 in my hometown Goes. I’m a firefighter and a freelance photographer.

As a child I always had the interest for industrial photography. Ever since my first visit to an abandoned shipyard near my home the adrenaline rush didn’t stop. Almost weekly I pack my camera gear to get out and visit the abandoned world.
