There are a number of reasons, mainly pure fascination. I get to see the inside of places that most people will never get to see and the normally off limit areas within society. I also like to document the places I visit, I enjoy reading their history, seeing original photographs and videos from when they are open and more recently speaking with ex-employees or residents. I also like photography and there is something about the subject matter of abandoned and derelict places that I have always found visually appealing.
