What happens to places once they are long forgotten? Why were they left behind? From empty family homes to hospitals for the insane, there are mysterious places tucked away and forgotten. Places all over the East Coast that were once inhabited, are now abandoned and are left to dwindle. Within these decaying places we are left with time capsules and a glimpse into the past. Urban exploration photography lets one’s imagination run wild. Imagine what it may have been like to stay at the beautiful ski lodge in the mountains or walk the halls of an eerie psychiatric ward; it can spark one’s interest in past events. The truth is, urban exploration is sketchy, sometimes like being in a horror movie and often dangerous. I go out and deal with the mold and asbestos, the broken glass, and the other difficult obstacles so you don’t have to. Enjoy the beauty within the decay.
“Urban exploration (often shortened as UE and urbex) is the exploration of man made structures, usually abandoned ruins or hidden components of the man made environment. Photography and historical interest/documentation are heavily featured in the hobby.”Wikipedia
