I love old doors and I know that I’m not the only one. Why are we so interested in doors? A closed door is some sort of a mystery that makes us curious. We ask ourselves: who is living in there? How are they living in there etc.?
The opening of a door is a very symbolic act because it means to see something new. Behind these doors I photographed a lot of things might have happened: love and hatred, birth and death, good years and bad years, happyness and despair, violence and harmony etc. and that’s really tickling my fancy. These decaying doors have stories to tell and have a melancholic mood which is similar to mine sometimes, but which I appreciate nevertheless. Life is not only guns and roses and that’s what these doors truly show. The most important for me are the colors and compositions (if possible in the golden ratio). I love these pastel colors of decay, where the bloom is off the rose. In some houses nature has taken over control again and one door looks as if Picasso has been there with a divine palette full of vivid colors.
