URBEX : Urban exploration is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment.

Photography and historical interest/documentation are heavily featured in the hobby and, although it may sometimes involve trespassing onto private property, this is not always the case and is of innocent intention.

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 and to expose its hidden beauty and their unique interesting qualities.

Left long enough to the will of nature, most manmade 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.

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.

The nature of this activity presents various risks, including both physical danger and the possibility of arrest and punishment.
