Ex­pert ad­vice Take part in an or­gan­ised Ur­ban Ex event

Digital Photo (UK) - - PHOTO Q+A -

One of the most pop­u­lar ways to get a taste of ur­ban ex­plo­ration with­out fly­ing close to the law or risk­ing your safety is to join an or­gan­ised visit to a place that’s usu­ally closed off to the public. Lo­cal coun­cils, mu­se­ums, so­ci­eties and ar­chi­tects reg­u­larly run ‘Hidden Space’ events in many of the UK’S ma­jor ci­ties. In the cap­i­tal, the Lon­don Trans­port Mu­seum plans trips to de­serted tube sta­tions, bomb shel­ters and of­fices (www.lt­mu­seum.co.uk/whats-on/hidden-lon­don), while Birm­ing­ham’s Hidden Spa­ces project (www.hidden-spa­ces.co.uk) has pre­vi­ously ar­ranged vis­its to closed cin­e­mas, swim­ming pools and even banks. Many of these ex­pe­ri­ences are planned with pho­tog­ra­phers in mind.
