Abandoned Feelings A photography project by Jennifer Kesteleyn

“Abandoned Feelings can be seen as my birth as a photographer.”

Abandoned Feelings is a series of meticulously constructed self-portraits shot in abandoned buildings throughout Europe.

For her project, Belgium-based photographer Jennifer Kesteleyn frequented abandoned sites, placing her own body against the remains of someone else’s memories to produce a series of evocative self-portraits.

One could say that Jennifer Kesteleyn was photographically born on the 31th of December 2015 whilst making her first self-portrait in an abandoned greenhouse. From then on, she started working on the series as a visual translation of the poetry she writes in an attempt to portray her inner feelings in decaying decors, questioning our relation to the real.
