It’s been a while since I last photographed an abandoned place. It’s been quite a long time since I even last wrote about it. So, when I discovered Janine Pendleton’s work, I was instantly reminded of how much beauty and mixed emotions one can fit into urbex photography. And this is exactly what Janine’s images are filled with. So, if you’ve been looking for new urbex photographers to follow, let’s dive into Janine’s work.
Janine lives in Cheshire and is based in Sandbach, UK. She enjoys traveling the world in search of lost and forgotten places. In fact, this is the main reason why she travels. Searching for interesting history or spectacular architecture, Janine has traveled to around 25 countries so far. The photographer isn’t only interested in the beauty behind the forgotten places. She also always tries to find out as much as she can about its history.
Other than discovering and photographing abandoned places in foreign countries, Janine also extensively explores the lost past of Britain. In addition to photos, she also keeps a travel blog of her road trips. It’s filled with locations articles, which include photos and any history she has been able to dig up.
Because of her interest in the history of each place she shoots, Janine describes herself as being not only a photographer but also a teller of forgotten stories. So, take a look at more of her photographic stories below, and make sure to follow her on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr.
