If the internet was to ban photographs of abandoned places or funny dog videos, I really don’t know which one I would be more upset about. Both get my clicks every time. But of course the internet would never do that; it just keeps on giving. Take this photo project for example, by Dutch photographer Alice van Kempen, who went road-tripping around Europe exploring abandoned places with Claire, a 3-year-old bull terrier as her companion.


Together, they crawled under fences, climbed walls, jumped through windows and sometimes just walked through the front door.

“Finding a new location is great fun but getting inside is where the real fun starts,” Alice tells Caters News. “Once we’re inside we check the building from top to bottom and I always start photographing the best spot in the house first.”
