Starting with the search for the right motif Fennema transcend`s natural boundaries. On his Photographic trips he travels across Europe where he finds unique treasure to photograph. The Focus of his Art are “Lost Places” – deserted places and buildings, stripped of their functions. Whether if it’s a hidden fairytale castle, rust-eaten industrial sites or former mental hospitals. Fennema tells their stories, good as well as bad ones. He captures the ailing motifs in a touching world, somewhere in between the past and today in vibrant and living pictures.
Each of his pictures is the result of the confrontation and connection with a place, its atmosphere and history. From this impact Fennema shapes his concept of an image – Long before he places his camera and plans all the following steps according to his imagination.
