Naturalia is a curated collection of images showcasing abandoned places reclaimed by nature. Ornate country mansions, luxury modernist designer homes, stone churches, farm holdings, factories, institutions, private homes, train stations, planes, cars, tanks, trains, palatial courtyards, spaces of work and play, life and death, all in the vivid processes of reclamation. A wide range of architectural styles from classical to hyper-modern are pictured in the grip of wild, resurgent nature.

« Jonk écume le globe depuis une quinzaine d’années à la recherche du cliché parfait. Avec le temps, après avoir fait un pas dans le street-art et l’urbex, il s’est rapproché d’un sujet qui constitue aujourd’hui le fil rouge de son œuvre: la réappropriation par la Nature des lieux créés par l’Homme. Son livre photo, Naturalia compile une centaine de clichés sublimes dédiés à ce thème. » Le Figaro

« Naturalia is packed with incredible photos of places where the natural world has swallowed up places we abandoned.  » New York Post
