A subculture about which I knew nothing until today: Infiltration, aka Urban Exploration — a hobby/practice all about getting into places where people aren’t supposed to go (without getting caught). There are beautiful spaces all around us that we never get to see, because we’ve been successfully trained to obey the language of fences and signs. Urban Explorers even have their own ‘zine (though most of the scene has moved online). Abandoned buildings, ferry boat engine rooms, old factories… Some places are totally unguarded, others heavily so (which is half the fun). Urban Explorers take care not to litter, get hurt, or absorb toxins. It’s all about the hunt (and the photos — these are lovely).
