Fort de la Chartreuse in black and white urbex photography

Fort de la Chartreuse in black and white gives a beautiful drama to the already cool Urbex photography location.

The fort was built by the Dutch between 1817 and 1823 to defend the city.

The entrance of the first main building is creepy, which could very well be a film set.

Walking along the very long hallway’s nature is almost eating the building, trees are growing inside the building.

Every room has it’s own set of windows and therefore the light in every room is slightly different.

As you can see, these twin looking windows gives a window to nature.

A very demolished bathroom didn’t give a lot of privacy to the visitor back in the days.

Let’s enter the second building, it’s a small one and almost absorbed by nature as well.

A few years from now the entire building will colaps.

The light on the graffiti gives a very nice perspective.

Let’s move to the dungeon of Fort de la Chartreuse.

There is always light at the end of the tunnel.

Fantastic light from the outside poring trough the windows.

Stairs crumbling until nature takes back, where it belongs.

The central staircase already lost its roof.
Fort de la Chartreuse in Black and White is a wonderful Urbex photography location.

  1. Ik ken de locatie maar nog nooit in zwart wit fotografie gezien. Prachtig gedaan, erg mooi contrast op de foto’s.

  2. Prachtige foto’s van een prachtige locatie. Ze zijn zo mooi dat ik er graag een aantal zou bestellen om op groot canvas te drukken en aan de muur te hangen.

  3. Prachtige foto’s! Erg mooi met t licht en dat je ziet dat de natuur in en om t gebouw zo krachtig aanwezig is. Je wordt er helemaal in meegezogen, wil meteen meer zien. En zelf ook door die gangen lopen. Ik word nieuwsgierig naar de geschiedenis van het gebouw en wat voor een mensen er hebben rond gelopen en wat er allemaal gebeurt is. Zelfs in verval zit schoonheid, mooi te zien. Dank je dat we hiervan mee mogen genieten, Charles!
