Street Photography and Abandoned Municipalities

Home  »  Articles  »  Street Photography and Abandoned Municipalities

I’ve always been fascinated by abandoned places. They’re like a window into another world, a world that’s been left behind. And when I discovered street photography, I found a way to combine my two passions.

Street photography is all about capturing the every day, the mundane. But in abandoned places, there’s an element of the uncanny, of something that’s not quite right. It’s like you’re walking through a dream.


The feeling of the unknown

And that’s what I love about it. There’s a feeling of exploration, of discovery, even though you know there’s nothing really there. Just empty buildings and endless streets. But in those streets, you can find beauty in the decay, in the peeling paint and crumbling concrete. There’s a kind of poetry to it.

Urban exploration is a term used to describe the act of exploring abandoned or otherwise off-limits urban areas. This can include everything from derelict buildings and infrastructure to storm drains and sewer systems. For many, urban exploration is a way to see the hidden side of the city – the one that isn’t usually open to the public.

Abandoned municipalities are often rich grounds for urban exploration. These are places that have been abandoned by their inhabitants, usually due to some sort of economic or environmental disaster. Often, these places are left in a state of decay, which can be both fascinating and eerie to explore.



Street photography often goes hand-in-hand with urban exploration. This type of photography captures everyday life on the streets, often in candid moments. It can be a great way to document the hidden stories of a city.

Both street photography and urban exploration can be ways of uncovering the hidden layers of a city. They offer a unique perspective on the urban landscape and can be ways of seeing the beauty in unexpected places.
