    Default Experienced Urbexers wanted


    Hey Guys, wasn''t sure if this was the best place to put this, but basically I’m a third year university student studying photography in London, and for my dissertation I am writing about urban exploration and how it has evolved and changed the genre of spatial photography (in a good way obviously!). I was just wondering if any experienced urbexers would be interested in being a part of my dissertation? It wouldn’t be much, just answering a couple of questions that I can then use to reference in my paper. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, or you have any further questions then please don’t hesistate to email me back. Also if you wish to contribute but remain anonymous that is fine as well.



    Thanks,
    Sophie

    Yep, same criteria for me!
    There was someone called "cherrybombshell" who done the same not too long ago. I think her thread is still on Page 2 of this forum.
    A few members on here have websites with FAQs as we get asked things a lot
    Good luck!

    Name or Alias: Krela
    Location: Bristol

    1.When did you start exploring and what triggered the urbex 'virus' for you?

    Always been doing it since I was a kid, first started under the name 'urbex' in 2003 if I remember correctly.

    2. have you seen any big changes in the urbex scene. In terms of attitude towards/or a massive increase in popularity of urban exploring?

    Yes, it has increased massively since 2003, largely when the petrolhead forums found out about it and decided to join en masse in 2005 then google probably has a lot to do with it since then too. Growth tends to be organic on the internet, so the more people do it, the more people will do it.

    Attitude hasn't changed much, different people do different things for different reasons, and you get a wide spectrum whatever subject or hobby you're talking about.

    3.Where has been your favourite place to explore, and have you been faced with any particularly dangerous or risky experiences?

    Pyestock, CWM Cokeworks and Bridgewater Cellophane, all equally good before they all got trashed by pikeys around 2007/8. Heavy industry tends to be dangerous, common sense helps.

    4.Do you think of yourself as a photographer who explorers or as an explorer who takes pictures?

    I am both, together and independently of each other.
