La Belle et la Bête by Marco Campelli

Urbex

Urbex, or Urban Exploration refers to the exploration of man-made structures and spaces. The catch about urbex is that unlike classic street photography, they explore abandoned spaces or buildings that are in ruins. Sometimes, urbex explores places that are not generally allowed to be entered by the general population.

Marco Campelli’s urban exploration photographs tell a true story of the Beauty and the Beast. The almost-forgotten buildings reveal the hidden structures of the human environment. At the same time, they explore the inner architecture of the human soul.

The abandoned state of the buildings makes them appealing, uniting the beauty and the beast in one.

Urbex stories are a great proof of how, in a world where everything seems to be archived forever, many things do go forgotten, but not before they are captured first.

Going Places with Moyan Brenn

Traveling has always been a major theme in photography. May it be urban photography, landscape photography or portrait photography, the so-called “different” has always fascinated both amateur and professional photographers.

 

Taking travel photos is a quest of capturing not only a place that is different from your everyday surroundings, but also a state of mind, an impression.

Through his highly colorful photographs, Moyan Brenn is evoking that powerful impression the colors of a place leave you with: the sunlight is almost breaking through from the photographs and the depths of the nights unravel their mysteries in clear-cut details.
