Treasures of Decay

“Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints.” A showcase of Urban Exploration photography.

Go to Places


Countries are each unique in their own beauty. Russia and the Gambia, although worlds apart, remain some of my favourites.

Go to People


Portaits of people I have met along the way during my travels.

Go to Documentary


Social causes that inspire me to wake up every morning. Human rights, alleviation of poverty, gender equality, and the current refugee crisis.

Whois Marc McCLain?

Reasons why I wake up in the morning.

Dream. Dare. Do. “I look for beauty in objects that others might consider ugly.” Urban Exploration photography allows me to look beyond first impressions and challenge notions of what is beautiful. Social causes are important to me and I believe we should all do our part to contribute to a better world, in whatever way we can. I try to do this in my work, and my volunteering activities. Read more about this in the "stories" section.

  • Off the beaten path

  • We all are created equal, some just have been given better opportunities to develop themselves

  • Love my gadgets and technology

  • Pushing my limits, getting out of my comfort zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch


Sources of ongoing renewal and inspiration


I will be exhibiting my Urban Exploration Work at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University in January. More news details to follow soon.
