What lengths would you go to in order to express your art and the beauty you see to others. Would you knowingly put yourself in a position to get arrested? Photographer Dan Marbaix does exactly that for his craft. In fact he has been arrested over 20 times and has even been held at gunpoint in order to capture these incredible images. Dan travels from city to city to capture the worlds abandoned churches, schools, asylums, government buildings, houses and much more. He refuses to give up his quest to capture these beautiful and sometimes creepy settings before they are gone forever.

Dan wasn’t supposed to be in any of these places but he made it in and this is what he captured before he himself was captured.
