Urbex Community: infiltration.org

Posted by sickbritain On April - 29 - 2009

One of the early pioneers of the Urbex community was the late Jeff Chapman based out of Toronto, Canada. Also known by the handle Ninjalicious, Chapman setup a magazine in 1996 covering the topic of Urban Exploration (a term he is credited with coining), 25 issues in total were published and Chapman also setup the website infiltration.org in the same year as the magazine.

Profiling the history of urbex, posting site visits and how-to guides, infiltration.org has been a mainstay of the urban exploration community, take a look at some of the historical snapshots over at archive.org: 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007. The site currently allows you to buy back-issues of the ‘zine and Ninjalicious’ book Access All Areas is available for sale (I just bought mine from Amazon Canada, it’s on it’s way now).

The site’s well worth a look, especially the Urbex Timeline
