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 state hospital system. His new book, “Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences” (JonGlez Publishing), is now available worldwide through major booksellers. His photography has been featured on NBC Nightly News, the L.A. Times, BBC, ABC News, NPR, Philadelphia Inquirer, Washington Post, Catholic Sun, Yahoo News, Yahoo Travel, Business Insider, The Telegraph, the Daily Mail, Buzzfeed, the Weather Channel, the Huffington Post, New York Daily News, the Metro, the Discovery Channel Magazine, the Harrisburg Patriot, and many others. He has lectured on the art of ruins, abandoned spaces, preservation, and mental health history for Preservation Austin, the Pennsylvania State Museum, Preservation Pennsylvania, Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, and many others, and his work has been displayed in galleries across the US. His website, Abandoned America, has gained international attention and is considered one of the leading collections of images of abandoned spaces.

If you have a question about the site please consult the general FAQ first. Information on workshops can be found on this FAQ. Please do NOT ask about site locations. If the location is not divulged in the site description, it is not public information and will not be given out nor will these emails be replied to. Abandoned America is also unable to reply to requests for information on how to find/access/gain permission to buildings, what cameras to buy, feedback on photographs, or how to start a paying career as a photographer. The volume of email sent to this site makes it impossible to devote the individual attention to these requests that they require. Unless you are communicating regarding business (in which case responses are given priority), please allow time for a response. Possibly a lot of time. Any emails may be included (without identifying details) in future “Mailbag” posts. Abandoned America can be reached at
