Jonathan 'Jonk' Jimenez (Paris). A passionate photographer since an early age, Jonathan 'Jonk' Jimenez discovered urban exploration a decade ago. Starting with the catacombs and rooftops of Paris, it lead to abandoned spaces with fabulous décor and extraordinary atmosphere. While photographing he found a particular interest in those scenes created by nature taking back inhabited spaces. He has spent the last number of years looking for these places and his adventures have led him to explore more than 700 abandoned locations in 30 countries on 4 continents.
