In a series of haunting photographs taken at secret locations across western Europe, Feijen shows furniture, ornaments and personal momentoes frozen in time.

His Disciple of Decay collection features a neatly-made bed in a rotting farmhouse, an empty armchair in an abandoned home, and a spiral staircase in a deserted monastry.
