Haunting Photos Of An Abandoned America

Philadelphia-based photographer Matthew Christopher’s ‘Abandoned America’ series chronicles the beauty and history of America’s decaying and deteriorating buildings.

Christopher first started documenting abandoned buildings as part of research on the declining state hospital system. He has since moved on to photograph abandoned schools, prisons, hotels, theaters, factories and churches.

He finds peace in exploring ruins and abandoned buildings, and feels that he is able to focus entirely on the experience, instead of always “being wrapped up” in his thoughts.

Christopher is now considered an authority on “urban blight and the efforts to preserve America's endangered architectural history”.
