Abandoned America:
The Age of Consequences

[thb_dividers style=”style9″]

Entering the room midway to stand motionless in melancholy silence the air fills with charged whispers from the past, voices on the wind, chilling breaths from the past tingles down the spine.

Listening hard the wind faintly carries the echos of yesteryear,

conversations reaching out from times gone by.

Stop and empty your mind and feel the floors, walls and ceilings with your spirit and soul. The room fills with electric energy, a buzz with life lived and no longer seen, an imprint in passing time.

As in Abandoned America and throughout the ages, mankind has been fascinated by the ruins of previous societies. The desire to gain a greater understanding of our past has driven archaeologists, artists, and scholars from across the world to study the vestiges of lifestyles that have vanished in an attempt to capture their mystique and beauty.

Originally intended as an examination of the rise and fall of the state hospital system, Matthew Christopher’s Abandoned America rapidly grew to encompass derelict factories and industrial sites, schools, churches, power plants, hospitals, prisons, military installations, hotels, resorts, homes, and more.

Through his collection of writing and photography,

Matthew Christopher has spent the last decade documenting the ruins of one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever known: our own.

Exploring sites like the charred remains of the Hotel Do De, the rusted cells of the Essex County Jail Annex, the sublime majesty of the Church of the Transfiguration, or the eerie and dilapidated remnants of the New Castle Elks Lodge, the work spans architectural treasures left to the elements and then all too often lost forever.
