I am a writer, photographer, and researcher at the University of Oxford with an interest in uncovering hidden places in soil, seas, cities and space. From 2005-2008 I travelled the world as an archaeologist. From 2008-2012, I lived as an urban explorer, photographing off-limits urban spaces. Place Hacking is the home for that project. I am currently developing a new project on astral geographies, exploring the ways in which technology is changing our relationships with outer space. All of my past, current and future projects work to reveal, through experiential engagement, what is hidden from plain sight.

My new book Place hacking: tales of urban exploration will be released by Verso in Fall 2013. If you’re interested in my current work, please visit my hub site. If you are interested in using media on this site, please contact Lisa Zeff at N.S. Bienstock, Inc.
