Enter The Forgotten Paradise Of Abandoned Worlds Reclaimed By Nature

Jonk is a photographer with an affinity for the abandoned, forgotten, and forsaken corners of the globe.

To this explorer, there's nothing more invigorating than stumbling upon lost worlds, places forgotten by mankind and inevitably reclaimed by nature.

Jonk's been traveling the world since he was 17 with his camera is always in tow. These days, he's is based in Paris but still continues to scour the globe for destroyed magnificence. Driven by an insatiable curiosity, he's scaled rooftops, crawled through tunnels, jumped fences, and roamed the subterranean world of Parisian catacombs.

For Jonk, nothing rings more true than the thoughts of Marcel Proust: "Because the true paradises are the paradises that we have lost."

This is his paradise and he calls the collection of his work Naturalia, a reference to the wild growth of nature reclaiming the vacated worlds.

You can find his Naturalia book here and follow his current adventures on Instagram.
