    Chernobyl/Prypiat: A Silent City

    September 2011, Marije (s0y) and I finally took the trip we wanted to do for so long, visit Ukraine, Kiev and in particular, the 30km exclusion zone around Chernobyl, with the ghost town of Prypiat. When I saw the bumper carts, I almost cried. Afterwards, we were exhausted; there was so much to take in. And bringing too many cameras is never a good idea. ;)

    Analogue Urban Exploring in Dadipark

    Together with a small group of friends, I went to the abandoned amusement park 'Dadipark', which closed almost 10 years ago after a series of accidents in which a 9-year-old boy lost his arm. Although more and more people find their way to this park as it is an open secret, it is still quite intact. It was freaky and fascinating. And definitely worth a visit.

    Derelict Military Barracks

    On the outskirts of Bath, one of the UK's most popular tourist cities lies this crumbling derelict military barracks. It opened in the 1940s and closed over 50 years later in 1993. A few years ago there was "news" that the site would be converted into retirement homes - nothing seems to have happened with that plan though.

    Nine Levels Copper Refinery Taiwan

    Doing some Urbex photography has been one of my photography goals this year, but it took awhile to find a good first location. With a bit of research I found out about an old Copper Refinery that dates back to the Japanese Occupation in Taiwan. It closed down in the early 70's and was left abandoned for nature to take over. It's located on the north coast of Taiwan and it would be a full day trip to reach the location.

    Last week, we introduced you to Riccardo Parenti's beautiful film photographs around Nichitsu, a popular ghost town around three hours away from Tokyo. We got in touch with Parenti soon after and asked him to tell us more about his ongoing project and experiences in the famous haikyo ("abandoned place").
