Abandoned world photography is one of the most unique styles of NFT art in 2022, and it is the perfect complement to every NFT collector’s photography exhibition.
Exclusive, Rare NFT Photography
Each Abandoned World photograph offers the collector a unique, individual experience in the form of raw emotion and visual perspective. No two photographs are identical. Most importantly, my photographs are impossible to reproduce, because they are of real abandoned buildings, most of which have been demolished since the time I photographed them, rendering them lost in history.
Furthermore, the abandoned buildings that do still have feet under them are in a state of great disrepair, and if a photographer decided to explore and document the same building I had previously, his or her images would still be unique to mine.
What Else Makes My Urbex NFT Photographs Unique?
Abandoned buildings change in appearance daily due to neglect. As they disintegrate and rot into the ground, the dust and leaves accumulate, colours fade and morph, roofs and floors creak and crack, and colourful flowers and trees blossom and swallow rooms whole, as the buildings become more damp, dark, and dilapidated.
And with these earthly changes, comes a semblance of history frozen in time, a non-judgmental space to seek refuge in when the world gets too much, and an escape when needed from everyday pressures and noise.
10 Years of Urbex Photography
My urbex photographs have been taken over the span of 10 years across a multitude of countries such as Ireland, the UK, Australia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
I’ve photographed hundreds of sites, all of which have involved hours of work including travel time to the sites, exploring and photographing the buildings from basement to attic, and more.
9 times out of 10, I’ve explored and photographed these sites on my own, even when in strange countries where language was a barrier.
A Full World View of Urbex and Abandoned Buildings
Over the past 10 years, I’ve strived to photograph as many different types of abandoned buildings as possible, to give viewers an overall views of what an abandoned world really looks like. These include abandoned schools, churches, hospitals, prisons, houses, and more.
I’ve guided film directors, musicians, producers and artists to many of the buildings featured on the Abandoned World Photography website over the years, and never once asked for commission. Furthermore, I’ve appeared on radio stations, written for newspapers, and magazines and aided other urbexers fulfil their new found hobby.
For the first time, I am going to try and create an income out the thing I enjoy doing most in life: exploring, photographing, conducting research, learning about history, and writing long-form articles.
Historical Research on Abandoned Buildings
As well as fine tuning my best photographs and publishing full albums for people to digest and enjoy, I always conduct a full history background research on the sites. As you browse through my site, you’ll notice most of the photo albums and videos are accompanied by 1000+ word articles giving a historic timeline of the site.
These articles were written by myself after trawling through libraries, government reports, newspaper archives and more. The aim is to present a view of the buildings in their abandoned state, and also assist the viewer in imagining the life, atmosphere and people who occupied the buildings over the past hundreds of years.
Abandoned World Metaverse Plans
The only way that the abandoned world I’ve photographed can come back to life is in the form of a digital Abandoned World Metaverse, which is what collectors will be funding with their generous investments. I want to create an online world that’s devoid of people, concrete buildings, and chaos.
My fantasy metaverse will offer users a place to escape daily life, find comfort and refuge, and explore meaningful, interesting, and unusual places that offer endless hours of urban exploration within the most realistic, abandoned virtual reality world of 2023.
Definitely watch this space!
NEW NFT Photography Collection

The “Urbex in Colour” rare 1:1 NFT photography collection aims to remove the stigma of darkness attached to “abandonedness” and shine a light on the enthralling colours and textures that are left behind when a building becomes dilapidated.

No. The website is remain unchanged and all of the photos and videos will stay as they are. However, I will be selecting the most popular sites and turning the top photographs into NFT for people to now buy, claim full ownership of, and add to their NFT photography portfolios.
