Ruins in the USA photographed by Matthew Christopher. Not just because it's aesthetic. Look at the larger picture.
"The ruins in his Abandoned America project are reflective of something larger, he says. "Buildings are not just physical objects. They are representative of systems. A factory is representative of industrialization and capitalism. Churches are representative of religion. Schools are part of the social contract to educate people. So, when you're looking at an abandoned building, you're not just looking at its death, but the death of a larger way of life.""
