Meet Jeffrey Stroup, a native Clevelander and very talented Photographer with a very exciting hobby: Jeffrey is an Urban Explorer.
If you’re not familiar, Urban Exploration, a.k.a. Urbex, is the art of exploring abandoned buildings, climbing bridges and diving into sewers. It’s also becoming rapidly popular around the world!
Jeff was nice enough to let me tag along for a day and document his exploits. This goes without saying, but I had a blast!
And although I had the time of my life, taking a glimpse of Cleveland from a graffiti-stained roof and working my way out through the dark catacombs of a rusty boiler room, my adventure is very minor for Jeff and his 200 + adventures! All of which, FYI, can be found on his very popular blog, Climbing the Fence. You can also see what him and his friends are up to via his Instagram.
I’d stay on top of it too…He posts pretty frequently, and has little intention of stopping, internet or not…But fear not, I sincerely doubt the internet is going anywhere. As for Jeff, I had such a good time that I have a feeling this won’t be the last I see of him!
