Following on from his bestselling title Abandoned America:The Age of Consequences Matthew Christopher brings Abandoned America: Dismantling The Dream. If the creation of a structure represents the values and ideals of a time, so too does its subsequent abandonment and eventual destruction. In "Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream", internationally acclaimed photographer Matthew Christopher continues his tour of the quiet catastrophes dotting American cities, examining the losses and failures that led these ruins to become forsaken by communities that once celebrated them. From the heartbreaking story of a state school that would become home to one of the country's worst cases of fatal neglect and abuse to the shattered remains of what was once the largest mall in the United States, "Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream" asks what leads us to leave places behind and what the consequences are of doing so. Exploring the remnants of two gorgeous theaters fighting for survival, the country's largest privately owned zoo, a a beachfront community left for dead when its bridge burned, a massive crumbling asylum, a derelict ocean liner larger than the Titanic, and more.

Dead men tell no lies; dead places speak only truth. But what questions shall we ask the dust? Ask the Dust is an epic journey through ruins from the genteel parlours of long dead haute bourgeoisie families to the sparse industrial beauty of mid-century factories as they quietly rust away. Like a vivid daydream, you find yourself absorbed in wordless reveries from page to page. Ask the Dust is a feast of urban ruin photography, executed in gorgeous full colour, full page spreads framed by the overview of the young French adventurer behind the camera. Featuring a potent blend of haunting images of never before seen locations and new angles on classic subjects - Ask the Dust is a visual treat for anyone who cannot keep their eyes away from the elegant corruption of decomposing buildings. Romain Veillon, light hunter, adventurer, urban explorer - goes out to discover the things that progress has left behind and bring them back to the rest of us in his hauntingly beautiful images. The edge of the world is now found in the crumbling edifices left behind by the endless expansion of the built environment. Into these weird castles he brings his big light, to reanimate, for the space of a hot-triggered-slave-flash-fire, a fragment of a sunken reality. Our obsession with the hinterland between life and death finds its most compelling expression in this thriving subculture of photographers who explore urban ruins. Veillon serves up a feast of decay for your contemplations, beautifully shot and artfully composed. This collection of images is as disturbing and hypnotic as any requiem should be - and it offers an exquisite moment of escape from a culture increasingly experienced as a lifetime of frenetic activity divorced from any chance for reflection. So, what, in the end, do we ask the dust? You decide...
