Past Structures Revealed by Les Johnstone

Les Johstone’s photographs, if looked at for quite a long time, can have the power to turn into portals to world’s you’ve always known existed, but thought that were present only in dreams.

By shooting from a forward angle, Les’ images introduce you to an unfiletered world that reveals itself before your eyes. The urbex landscapes he captures draw the curtain from urban myths we’ve all heard about and imagined how they would be in reality.

From impressive ballrooms and abandoned planes to the Buzludzha monument in Bulgaria, Les Johstone’s works open up the secret world available to anyone who takes a closer look at the world around them.

Julien Roesz’s Déjà Vus

Julien Roesz is a photographer from Strasbourg, France who is engaging in a photographic endeavor of high interest. His urban exploration photographs are impressive images that generate not only the classic emotions urbex imagery usually creates, but that also raise questions.

His photos give the viewer a sense of déjà vu. When looking at his works, you get a sense of having been there before – maybe in an alternavie universe, maybe in a dream, maybe in a moment you simply don’t remember.

More than that, the images contain not only the past of place, but also the state of mind of the present viewer and their dreams and hopes for the upcoming times.

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.
