If you are looking at my galleries for the first time, the best order for viewing my images is to start with the nature gallery, then move to the travel gallery and then finish with this gallery. This will take you through the natural progression of my photographic vision. Like so many others, I have a real love for travel and adventure. But when I don’t have the luxury of traveling as much as I would like, I take to finding adventures in other ways. Along came URBEX photography. This is a genre of photography that brings the camera out into urban explorations.
I have always had an interest in architecture and gritty street art. One of my favorite things to do is to get inside an old building and just explore the depths of it. There’s nothing like finding an old basement that is stuffed with strange and forgotten things. My mind wanders through time trying to envision the exact moment when these hidden relics were placed there by human hands. I can’t help but wonder: “How did they end up here and why were they forgotten?”, and then I’m off with my camera attempting to capture the sense of wonder. It’s kind of the same way with old abandoned buildings and those hidden nooks and alleys. Why was this place, which was once filled with life, forgotten? Adding the eye that my travel photography trained to the mystery of the forgotten and crumbling urban relics creates an opportunity for art. I am greatly enjoying this newer aspect of my photography and looking forward to the next adventure.
