David de Rueda was born in Poitiers in 1987. From a family of artists, his creative and inquiring mind soon drove him to travel the world in search of unusual places. Captivated by the aesthetic beauty of derelict buildings, he produced a major series of photographs of structures captured during his numerous urban excursions. Turning exploration into a boundless passion, he has ventured into impenetrable environments, laden with mystery, with the aim of photographing them and making them visible. His trip to the heart of abandoned America resulted in striking photographs taken on the spot or staged using available light, illustrating the hidden life of the places he visited.
