Interviewing Michael Cook, the Coolest Explorer-Person Ever

Is it wrong to fall in love with an interview on a website? We’re really questioning the way we define our feelings after reading BLDGBLOG‘s interview with the guy who runs the Vanishing Point website and goes into abandoned urban landscapes, Michael Cook. It’s perhaps one of the longest interviews we’ve ever found online and full of photos that will make you want to take down all the framed screenprints you have lining your hipster house and replace them with these. In it, Cook talks about not just his site and his “urban exploration,” but more specifically, his recent fascination exploring and photographing Canada’s incredible system of underground tunnels. It’s pretty amazing, both to read about it and the pure visual candy. Honestly, if you don’t love this, we don’t want to have anything to do with you. Ever.
