Join us for yet another insightful journey through some of America’s most haunting ruins. From abandoned malls and amusement parks to churches, factories, and homes, these spaces and places offer fascinating glimpses into places that time seemingly left behind. Through this presentation, we will consider the stories that separate fact from fiction as we appreciate the life cycle of buildings and places and their distinctive history.

About the presenter: Matthew Christopher has had an interest in abandoned sites since he was a child, but started documenting them a decade ago while researching the decline of the Pennsylvania hospital system. His two books, “Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream” and “Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences,” together with his website, also titled Abandoned America, chronicle the stories of modern ruins across the United States. His work is featured in publications and media outlets including the New York Times, ABC and NBC News, PDN, The Atlantic, Photographer’s Forum, The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, the Daily Mail, and the NY Daily News among others.
