Urban Exploring by Niki Feijen

7261167018_57cf6264ff_zUrbex, short for Urban Exploring is according to Wikipedia: The examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities. So basically visiting and photographing abandoned buildings, tunnels, industry, castles etc. Most of my shots are HDR shots, short for High Dynamic Range. HDR is perfect for low light locations but it has to be subtle. Besides Urbex, I have this crazy stairs addiction. I can spend hours underneath a staircase just to take that one awesome shot. A stairwell or an atmospheric urbex shot can turn into something very special, almost a piece of art. That’s the exactly what I want to show people; the beauty of decay, the Art of Urbex. “  Niki Feijen

The beauty of decay by kiekmal

7567233906_37af374d84_z“I like the beauty of nature and the beauty of the spatial results of human beings. And I like when these results get abandoned and nature returns. I want to show the atmosphere of abandonment and the beauty of decay.”  kiekmalUrban exploration (often shortened as urbex or UE) is the examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities. Urban exploration is also commonly referred to as infiltration, although some people consider infiltration to be more closely associated with the exploration of active or inhabited sites. It may also be referred to as draining (when exploring drains), urban spelunking, urban rock climbing, urban caving, or building hacking. ~ Wikipedia

Urban Exploration by Jared Lim

jaredlim02In and around modern buildings around the world, Jared Lim has shown an intense passion to find geometry, lines, and curves but, most of all, he’s astute at finding patterns. “Urban Exploration consists of photos I took during the course of my full-time, travel-related career,” he tells us. “Since most of the places I travel to are major cities, architecture is the prevailing theme. I have loved geometry since I was a kid. Even when I was young, I loved to create repeated patterns and designs at school.”

La Casa Americana

Julius Shulman è un fotografo americano nato nel 1936 che per anni ha fotografato le case e gli edifici creati da architetti in California, alcune delle sue immagini sono diventate icone in una moltitudine di libri e film.

La casa a testa in giù

Questa casa è una scena da Mago di Oz. Sembra che un tornado abbia strappato la casa da terra scaraventandola lontano a testa in giù. In realtà, la struttura è stata progettata dagli architetti polacchi Irek Glowacki e Marek Rozanski, esattamente in questo modo! Un progetto sviluppato in otto mesi nella città occidentale di Terfens in Austria, l’attrazione turistica più recente che attirerà sicuramente l’attenzione.
