With her photographic work Kathrin Broden leads the viewer to mysterious places, letting him steep into a world of decayed buildings. Focus of her work are „Lost Places“, abandoned and derelict mansions, closed hotels, dead barracks and vacated industrial buildings and amusement parks. She tries to capture the specific atmosphere of these places. With her pictures she wants to share her own fascination for these buildings with the viewer, exposing the special magic and the beauty in decay. The images are always a piece of contemporary history, showing a world in between yesterday and nowadays.
