Shimon Finkelstein

Urbex photographer


My addiction to photographing landscapes is nature compelling me to curate its creations and I am honoured to comply. Attuned to its subtleties I am continuously trying to understand its best kept secrets. My passion is to discover the hidden beauty concealed in the decay of abandoned buildings, obscure alcoves and rocks and trees that are oblivious to most of us. As long as there is a theme of erosion in process I am hooked. I feel fortunate for having developed an eye that can detect and appreciate beautiful images that first appear as “ugly”. My photographs are a bridge that connects my inner views and perspectives with the spaces I observe and inhabit.
