Don't try this at Home: Lana Sator and the Rocket Factory
Lana Sator in the Rocket Factory
Sometimes it's all about access. Lana Sator, a Russian girl urban explorer/photographer that redefines the word intrepid, wanted a look at the NPO Energomash Rocket Factory near Moscow, so she took her camera and climbed the fence. Nothing happened. No alarms, no guards, not even a dog. Nothing. She went on to photograph this secret facility at leisure, inside and out. The Russian government is not happy with the pictures she published on the web and asked her to take them down, but it was too late. They escaped out into the world at large.
