Julien Roesz is a photographer from Strasbourg, France who is engaging in a photographic endeavor of high interest. His urban exploration photographs are impressive images that generate not only the classic emotions urbex imagery usually creates, but that also raise questions.
His photos give the viewer a sense of déjà vu. When looking at his works, you get a sense of having been there before – maybe in an alternavie universe, maybe in a dream, maybe in a moment you simply don’t remember.
More than that, the images contain not only the past of place, but also the state of mind of the present viewer and their dreams and hopes for the upcoming times.
