My name is Thilou van Aken, 35 years old and I was born in Amsterdam. Little over 8 years ago I started photographing. Initially it was mostly Urban Exploration. Urban Exploration is about photographing and documenting infrastructure made by mankind. Typically these are abandoned buildings or non-public accessible locations. Throughout the years I also started working on assignments. Besides my day job, I started as a freelance photographer on January 1st 2020.
With my photos I hope to reach people, amaze and delight them, as well as giving them something they can not take their eyes away from. For me, the power of a great photo is that you have to keep watching it and I hope that people are touch by my view on the world.
