Furbex, a Dog’s Life of Urban Exploration

Urbex, the modern underground passion for ‘urban exploration’, involves exploring the hidden labyrinthsand decaying chambers of disused buildings and abandoned urban spaces. In Furbex Ammonite Press presents you with two 21st Century adventurers, photographer Alice van Kempen and her Bull Terrier and best friend Claire, who together have visited ruined hotels and grand houses; crumbling castles and palaces; broken down and long-closed factories and prisons, forgotten theatres and cinemas. All haven fallen into disrepair; most still display the faded trappings and trampled luxuries of their glorious or inglorious pasts; and many have been spectacularly reclaimed by nature.
