JX : The URBEX Print Collection
URBEX : Urban exploration is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. " Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time "
Over the last year RWCS Photographics have been collaborating with a local URBEX photographer J**** X who had struggled to get proper and professional prints made of his URBEX work. So over the last year some 45 + prints all mounted using the RWCS print block format have been carefully produced and now form JX's private collection hung on the walls of his house in Sussex
Urban decay photography is the form of photography that deals with the techniques of taking pictures of deserted buildings. Although the buildings have been abandoned for more than a few years or more, the expert photographers make them look absolutely stunning. After all, the magic of great photography is to make an ordinary building come to life and to expose its hidden beauty and its unique interesting qualities.
Left long enough to the will of nature, most man-made environments will eventually fall into disrepair. For an urban decay photographer there is a wealth of interest - and even beauty - to be found in the different ways these decrepit structures take on lives of their own.
It's essentially the art of capturing beautiful photographs of a subject that is inherently not beautiful, and - for those of us who live near a urban environment - it can be an easy form of photography to explore.
Our own URBEX photographics work is also based on my long time historical industrial / rural decay work : you can see and find here
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 (exploring drains), urban spelunking, urban rock climbing, urban caving, or building hacking.
The nature of this activity presents various risks, including both physical danger and the possibility of arrest and punishment.
