People of EyeEm!

Welcome to your weekly dose of inspiration.

Today’s feature is all about urban exploring and finding beauty in places you probably wouldn’t expect to. To start with, we’ve asked Stefano aka Black Hole Sun about his passion for the Beauty of Decay:

Behindthese photosthere arestories,there are places,there isa philosophy thatis basedonthe respect for theseplacesand their history.

We’re talking aboutabandoned factorieswherepeople worked,theatres thathaveseentheir stagetrodby peoplewith the common passionfor acting,formerasylumswhere men andwomen havesuffered.

When I go toshootin theseplacesI find thememptyand corruptedby the time.

My feeling, oddly,is of peacebuta peace thatallows you to thinkabout the historyof theplace you arevisiting and whichcan sometimesbe dramatic.

For your own future explorations we’ve selected 5 urban adventurers to inspire you. Say hi to Black Hole Sun from Milano, Italy, Andrea Lueck from Berlin, Germany, Giuseppe Navone from Camino, Italy,Kasia Wakzynzski from Philadelphia, USA, and elinlia from Oslo, Norway.

Enjoy your weekend. Let’s take photos together!
