Henk van Rensbergen is one of my favorite photographers.

He is a commercial airline pilot and has been posting his urban explorations into broken and forgotten places from all over the world, in locations like the Dominican Republic, Recife Brazil, Europe, and even such exotic locals as Hoboken. Go and browse through his website Abandoned-Places.com, it is well worth the time. His images are evocative and haunting.

As I try to check regularly for updates, I was pleased to see that he has finally gotten a gallery show. The info, which he has posted on his site;

October 2006 : abandoned-places photo exhibition November 27th - january 31st in Leuven, Belgium


Saturday November 25th is the opening of my first major photo exhibition.
The exhibition will be open to the public from November 27th until January 31st at the "Corso Galerie" in Leuven.
The Corso gallery is located in the famous 1960's dancehall "Corso", which has been renovated and now houses the succesful photoshop "Bert Verlinden" and on the first floor a huge exhibition space.



If you are going to be in Belgium, take the time to go and see his work. More info can be found on his website in the "Updates" section. If you do go, then tell me all about it.

I promise to be only a little bit insanely jealous.
