#UrbanExplorer #BobThissen gave a tour of his exhibition currently on show at Centre Céramique in #Maastricht yesterday. As part of the Maastricht Photo Festival fans were treated to personal annecdotes and highlights of his #urbanexploration career so far, and got a close-up view of the tools of his trade - complete with cameras, grapple hook, Geiger counter and radiation suit. Having visited many thousands of locations (often no-access ones), and sometimes risking his life, freedom and health, Thissen has captured images that illustrate the stark nature of civilisation juxtapositioned with themes of progress, perserverance, desolation and the overwhelming power of nature. The exhibition continues until 13 October and access is free of charge.
