Urban exploration (often shortened as urbex or UE) is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. Photography and historical interest/documentation are heavily featured in the hobby and, although it may sometimes involve trespassing onto private property, this is not always the case.
"Through the eyes of a photographer..."
I was born in Leipzig and only noticed its beauty after moving away. It's always a good idea to look at the city you live in closely - you will be surprised how many details you haven't noticed yet!
I'm a nature lover! Whenever it's possible, I go outside with or without my camera and take pictures in the forest, mountains or park. I also enjoy just breathing the fresh air and finding new calm and quiet places with my bike.
My name is Jess, I am a 26-year-old amateur photographer from Karlsruhe, Germany.
I passionately take pictures of abandoned buildings. I made this website to show my work. I started with photography in 2012 using a Panasonic Lumix Digital Camera.
Since 5 years, I've been using Canon's EOS 600D.
I hope you like my website! Feel free to contact me.
