Photographer Gina Soden’s pictures of abandoned buildings are at once majestic, disconcerting and utterly beautiful

- Evening Standard

  • ARTYQUE is proud to work with talented British photographer Gina Soden. At the heart of Gina Soden’s photography is a preoccupation with abandoned structures and the beauty distilled in these scenes by the passage of time.

    Based in London, she travels widely to undisclosed sites throughout Europe and explores the boundaries between beauty and decay, nostalgia and neglect, past grandeur and modern realities.

    Like Caspar David Friedrich or Hubert Robert before her, Gina Soden offers the viewer the chance to meditate on notions like the endurance of life through the inexorable passage time and to contemplate more ethereal concepts like beauty and calmness despite the slow downfall of past dreams.
