“What we think or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end of little consequence. The only thing of consequence is what we do “
John Ruskin 1819 1900
What is Urban Exploration? –
To us Urban Exploration is discovering what lays in our derelict society behind those closed doors and tucked away areas of our towns, cities and countryside. You can find military ruins and bunkers from the World War II and the cold war, abandoned mental asylums and derelict industries, an absance of the current order.
These places are unlikely to be seen by the everyday public and as redevelopment occurs these places will be lost forever, taking their history and secrets with them.
Ignorant people stereotype “Urban Explorers” as young teenage males with nothing better to do than “break into buildings”. They couldnt be more wrong
Urban Exploration is simply the idea we could enter that secret world and never return; or, better, that we could burn away this one, to reveal the one beneath entirely..
