Bradley L. Garrett is a researcher at the University of Oxford with a passion for photography of off-limits places. Brad worked as an archaeologist for five years, and during his time at the United States Bureau of Land Management, he became interested in the politics of designating and controlling access to sites of popular heritage. Soon after he started sneaking into “closed” locations in London, taking photographs, and sharing them with the public. His first book, Explore Everything: Place-Hacking the City (Verso Books 2013), is an account of his adventures trespassing into ruins, tunnels and skyscrapers in eight different countries. His second book, Subterranean London: Cracking the Capital (Prestel 2014), is a photographic dissection of what lies underneath the streets of London, layer by layer.
