Baksteen Productions About me

The dustiest locations on earth are the locations that inspire me the most. Locations that are abandoned, given up and often isolated.

Each with their own story, with their own uninhabited world, waiting to be captured and passed on. That's why I travel all over the world, under the name of Baksteen. My own name is Levaronne Lourens and I am a photographer from The Netherlands. Historical and architectural remains are what I prefer to photograph. What is an old, dilapidated building for some, is the scene of a wild spectacle for

When I set out to look for this long forgotten railroad, I wasn’t well prepared for such an adventurous hike. It took going through the deep green forest, from left to right because of the swampy underground, searching with my gps which only showed the treetops, asking other hikers which estimated another half hour while I was already tired from the long walk…but I was determined to see and photograph this place myself. 🕵🏽‍♂️

And finally in this hidden valley below the trees, there it was. The winding, broken down railroad looked like a track that formerly easily could have taken you to platform 9 ¾ or to the houses of the Hobbitses.

This former Institute , with a neo-romanesque architecture, looks like it has been at war. With damp walls and a decaying ceiling, lies in ruins. A grand building that whispers stories of the past, dressed in art, a building that still breathes life…

Power plants and glamour aren't two concepts you would normally put together in one sentence, but just look at this awesome control room. This power plant control room is a true time capsule of the glamour, elegance, and delicacy of Art Deco design! Perhaps far ahead of its time; so stunningly beautiful.

The remains of an old 16th-century castle in France, overgrown with plants and hidden in a forrest between ancient trees. There was not much left. However, the impressive tower which is a few dozen meters high shows that a lot of money was spent.

This abandoned palace is one of the most charming palaces I have been able to admire in the past year. When I saw it for the first time on the internet, I was deeply impressed and couldn't wait to see it with my own eyes. Unfortunately due to the corona crisis, my first trip was not a happy one. When the news reports offered some lean way to travel again, I immediately booked my trip again.

This beautiful synagogue has been abandoned for over 30 years.
It was built in the Neo-Moorish style and almost entirely made out of wood which - to me - is stunning! Moreover, everything is entirely decorated with artworks and carvings.

An abandoned 19th century palace with a beautiful exterior staircase. If you look closely you can still see the dent from the glass slipper. Isn't this an enticing appetizer? 👀

The first time I came across the pictures of this beautiful victorian mansion has been over 4 years ago. It was a gem on the top of a mountain, which I found after some real detective work. Still I didn't find the time to go and visit the place.Our journey started after we found more amazing locations to make the adventure complete. It still amazes me to see a rich architectural building like this being abandoned.

Photographing this beautiful abandoned casino is something that has been on my bucket list for a while now. I was actually late, I found out as I entered the building. The renovation has started and a fence surrounds the premises along with 24/7 security.

This gorgeous green house hiding out in the bushes, surrounded by loads of trees and plants, looks like a giant secret garden. There were still a few plants growing inside its shattered glass, that managed to survive and thrive quite well. After years of abandonment and neglect, nature takes over from the gardener. Plants started growing that covered the outside of the greenhouse and slowly were finding their way in to bring it back to life.

It's funny, the plant's that used to grow inside, dreamed about getting outside in the sun, and now they are desperately trying to get in ....

On the site of the demolished spa town, an engineer built this glorious villa overlooking a pair of beautiful islands on the lake. The love for his house led him to take care of the construction, down to the last detail, which ultimately took 3 years to complete. The engineer didn't have to worry about the costs and was able to indulge himself;

I want to dedicate this post to each and every one of you!! If I could, I would personally like to thank each of you but right now I can’t even get my head around the fact that 10,000 of you chose to follow me on my journey around the world.
I really hope to motivate you more to go out there & see the world because it really is the best thing ever.
I didn’t prepare any photo for 10k as it really came as a surprise to me today but here’s a little throwback.

About me

The dustiest locations on earth are the locations that inspire me the most. Locations that are abandoned, given up and often isolated. Each with their own story, with their own uninhabited world, waiting to be captured and passed on. That's why I travel all over the world, under the name of Baksteen.

My own name is Levaronne Lourens and I am a photographer from The Netherlands. Historical and architectural remains are what I prefer to photograph. What is an old, dilapidated building for some, is the scene of a wild spectacle for me.

I want to capture these scenes and pass it on with love to ensure that no one misses its beauty. My website is the place where I have put all these pictures together.
