Urban exploration can be identified as the study of modern relics. Urban explorers explore human made landscapes and the curious along with photographers, archeologists, sociologists etc are all potential participants in urban exploration. Urban sites such as abandoned architecture, sewers, tunnels and ghost towns are some of the places urban explorers study our collective man-made relics.
The website, Urban Explorers, I discovered more recently contains relevant information and tips for new and seasoned explorers along with forums and a network where you can create a profile, make new friends and connect in explorations. Their unwritten rule states “Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints.” The website is easy to navigate, organized and looks to be a network worth a visit.
