“A photograph is always invisible; it is not it that we see.” Roland Barthes.
Are these places open for public and safe? I mean, is there any risk for you to have something falling on your head or that you get your feet stuck somewhere?
No they’re not open to the public and they’re not necessarily safe. As the buildings deteriorate and the roofs begin to leak, so the floor starts to rot and give way. It’s all part of the fun!
