The journey began a few years ago, when Guillaume Prugniel J  was biking with a friend of his, during a summer afternoon. They found an abandoned factory over there and went inside. Little did they knew that the spot was the beginning of his love story with neglected and forgotten places!

Earlier, he used to photograph the places during day time, but eventually, ended up doing something different. An additional factor was his not being a morning person, so he started doing the job at night!

Gradually a passion in him for light and colours developed. In his images, he likes the human presence to be either lost in the whole composition or be fully engaged in the entire story. Mostly, he goes with friends, but if necessary, he becomes a character in the picture.

The spectacular images require extraordinary work and creativity. From a pure pocket light to numerous speedlights, is what he carries in his backpack and rest just happens to show up on the location.

Abandoned places echo a lot. Once his friend went 15m downstairs to model and set some lights. The repetition made vocal communication impossible so made a phone call and spoke softly.

Lighting Balance

A lot of light can cause issues in the places demanding you to be sneaky. For instance, they could be working in the night to avoid getting seen, but then, spotlights flashing could be intense.

Lurking Danger

Abandoned places can never be 100% safe, especially if they are unknown. It’s better to look during the day time. Working at night demands extra care and security! A reliable friend or companion is an excellent aid.
