Publisher's Description
Night Vision - A booming subculture is on the rise: dubbed Urban Exploration, it involves sneaking into abandoned or off-limits factories, aviation 'boneyards,' decommissioned bases, and other derelict features of the military/industrial landscape. Troy Paiva is a foremost photographer of the UrbEx (as it's known to its devotees) phenomenon, and his distinctive blend of atmospheric night photos and lighting effects are the visual hallmarks of a scene that has drawn the increasing attention of the media and the public—as seen in recent programs on both the Discovery Channel ('Urban Explorers') and MTV ('Fear'). Illuminated by histories of the sites documented, Night Vision reveals the remarkable discoveries of a new generation of explorers.
