Decay - URBEX - Richard Hancock LRPS

I’ve always been draw to ruins, dilapidated buildings, shipwrecks and junk. These decaying places seem to emit echoes from the past which allow the viewer to momentarily step back in time. These structures take on a new beauty as rust and paint flake away creating new colours and textures.


In recent times the trend of Urban Explores or URBEX has become popular with photographers and explores alike. Venturing into these forbidden places to see what is hidden to the public These are a selection of some of the URBEX photographs I have taken over the years documenting the beauty of decay.
