From the producers of BEHIND THE CAMERA and CRIMES OF
FASHION comes a new television series photoXplorers.
photoXplorers follows an adventurous band of guerilla
photographers/urban adventurers as they slip behind the
barricades to capture haunting images of abandoned
buildings and structures from around the world.
Forgotten industrial mega-structures, castles and arenas
of public gathering appear as post-modern ghost towns.
The images captured by this talented and charismatic group
are beautiful, original and eerily alive. The team is a
rare guerrilla art force like none other.
While fully exploiting the optical potential of HIGH
DEFINITION, photoXplorers is quite possibly, the most
deliberately ?visual? television series offered today.
photoXplorers invites the viewers to crawl under the
barbed wire fences, slip behind the plywood barricades and
marvel at the ?beauty of decay?.

rebuilt, modified and expanded from the 1500s onward. This
gorgeous structure evolved from a defensive fortress to a
