A booming underground subculture is rapidly rising in popularity and public attention: known as Urban Exploration, it involves sneaking into abandoned or off-limits places, simply to explore and absorb their atmosphere. UrbEx (as it's known to its devotees) practitioner Troy Paiva has created an astonishing body of photographic work in the course of his explorations. His use of long exposures and colored lights gives his stunning, largely nighttime, shots of decommissioned military bases, abandoned civic buildings, and airplane bone yards, an eerie, almost dreamlike quality. Text by Paiva and an introduction by prominent hipster journalist Todd Lappin illuminates the UrbEx phenomenon and tells behind-the-scenes stories of break-ins, tactics, close calls, and remarkable discoveries.
