Explore Decaying and Abandoned Buildings

Ever drive by an old overgrown farmhouse, or boarded up building and wonder what the inside looks like?  You’re not alone.

One of the current most popular photography genres is photographing abandoned places and buildings. This style of photography, or hobby is referred to as Urban Exploration.

Photos of abandoned buildings from urban explorers have become increasingly popular, especially with the explorers using social media and photo and video apps such as Instagram and TikTok to share their adventures. This popularity and increased attention has also created an influx of people interested in urban exploration, and photographing these abandoned buildings on their own.

This site is dedicated to photographing old, historical, and abandoned buildings, and to preserve their history through photographs. Not all of these older buildings will be saved or repurposed, with many eventually being torn down. 

With over a decade of exploring and documenting these abandoned and forgotten sites, you’ll find photo galleries of abandoned schools, hospitals, churches, asylums, power plants, and more. Check out the store to order prints of your favorite photos, as well as photography books on abandoned buildings.
