Due to the process of secularization and improvements in education and quality of life, Europe turned into one of the most irreligious regions in the world. And lots of churches and chapels ended up becoming obsolete. Dutch photographer Roman Robroek captured the beauty and melancholy of their ruins.

In these photo’s I’ve tried to capture the beauty in abandoned chapels and churches. Places like these can be very old carrying lots of history with them. The difference in architecture is great to see and I believe that each place tells its own story. Some of these places are actually destroyed or in renovation now. Taking a peek in a place like this and being able to share it is great to do. Chapels and churches are among my favourite abandoned places to visit because of the secrecy of what’s going on ‘behind’ the altar. I get to check every room and run into the most amazing things. Clothing, ancient books and tools used in services are just a few examples.
