Active for a dozen years as an "Urbexer", name given to the photographers who take photos in abandoned places, Jarold Dumouchel presents his work and the way he works with these mysterious places.
Passionate about the unique atmosphere that reigns in these places where the history of our fathers has been written, he describes the photogenic richness through dust, rust and this nature that slowly takes over his rights on these factories, schools, prisons and other abandoned buildings and locations.
Almost half of the sites he visited have been razed, burned or renovated. On a professional level, he is a senior websites developer.
Urbex community is a closed group who keeps an aura of secret over their locations. To protect these abandoned places from vandalism and destruction, they trade addresses only with people they know and trust.
Take a ride in this mysterious world with Jarold Dumouchel, a photographer who has been exploring these lost churches, closed jails, abandoned hospitals and many other kinds of buildings for more than 15 years.
Passioned by the old rusty and dusty buildings, he loves these atmospheres. He finds in these silent places, real utopian islands in today's world, teaming with modernity, ideal playgrounds for long exposure photos. Jarold loves planting his tripod, immersing himself in the place and surroundings, and taking advantage of the few light rays inside. Often barricaded, these places get light through the little holes where the atmosphere changes from hour to hour.
His favorite abandoned places are mines, jails, psychiatric hospitals and others complex buildings where most of us are not allowed to go.
