This year’s Art of Building photography competition saw thousands of public voters choose a stunning photograph of Kelenfold Power Station in Budapest as the outright winning shot.

“Curiosity created a close bond between me and urban photography and I have since visited so many beautiful locations all over the world,” explained Roman Robroek, Urban photographer from the Netherlands who took ‘Control’.

He said that the opportunity to take a peek behind closed doors is a truly unique experience, both relaxing and enticing at the same time.

The competition, which took place back in October 2016, saw thousands of amateur and professional photographers enter with the ambition of scooping the £3500 cash prize and title Art of Building Photographer of the Year.

The judge of the competition, Matt Wain, commented that Roman’s winning photograph shows that beauty can be found in the most unlikely of places and even in decay or abandonment the built environment still has a story worth telling.
