In 'Choices', Haker returns again to his favoured subject, the romantic majesty of abandoned palaces. Warm romantic lights floods into an intricately stuccoed banquet hall, flanked by two lofty Corinthian pillars, and painted in green and soft, roccoco pink. Matthias is a self taught photographer who specialises in shooting abandoned buildings, but just don't ask him where they are. "I do love abandoned buildings, I see so much beauty in those places, but there are too many idiots out there that don't behave like me. I've seen so much vandalism, theft and other bad things happening to those buildings, that I will do all I can to protect these beauties. Therefore I don't give any information about the location, not even the country...since every little piece of information makes it easier for people to find them. No exceptions."
Matthias has been working as a professional freelance and fine art photographer since 2012.
He specializes in architectural, landscape and urban topics as well as the photography of decaying buildings. Matthias' images have appeared in various magazines around the world and have been shown in exhibitions in London, Berlin and Paris.
