WCCO, one of Minnesota’s furthest-reaching television stations, as I’ve hinted about before, aired a feature this evening on Saint Paul photographer, urban explorer, history buff, and camera geek Mike Gilday. It was surprisingly not all that bad, as far as television coverage of urban explorers goes. No particularly stupid statements, no particularly bad pictures, lots of unkempt hair (and those sideburns!), and, surprisingly, no stern warnings from law enforcement. By the standards of urbex media coverage, it didn’t suck much at all.
On a related note, sometime in the past week or two, the shaggy photographer seems to have authored an interesting article about Melody Gilbert’s urban exploration documentary, which is well worth a read.
