The trendy pastime of photographing decaying buildings and factories has given rise to the term “Urbexer”. City dwellers roam around with the, sometimes at great risk camera armed through ruins and climbing through old buildings that are collapsing at any moment.
The word is made up of urban and exploration and refers to a young genre of ruin photography. The urbexers are attracted by the disappearance or decay of man-made structures, which are usually located in urban areas, and document their slumber with their recordings.

On the photo series above we show some lost places in the country: farmsteads between Iceland and Sicily, remains of farms in Canada or Western Australia.
