Incredible Panoramas of Abandoned Places

Matthew Christopher is preserving historic buildings in his own way. He uses photography to document old, endangered and abandoned buildings that, sadly, might not be preserved in any other way. His unique 360-degree panoramas tell the story of an “abandoned America” with an architectural grandeur that begs to be renewed and restored.  The photos are a powerful and eloquent argument for historic preservation. Read more about Christopher’s work at the Preservation Nation blog, and view the photos at Christopher’s website, abandonedamerica.us.
