Matthew Christopher is a commercial event, portrait, and architectural photographer and teaches and tutors in photography and photo editing. He is also an author and the creator of the photography-based website Abandoned America.
Matthew Christopher has had an interest in abandoned sites since he was a child. His goal as an adult is not only the historical and photographic cataloging of such sites, but also to offer a eulogy for the lost ways of life they represent. Through photographs, he ensures that even when it is impossible to retain an historic structure, its unique characteristics, stories, and social impact are not forgotten. Mathew shares some of his photos from Pennsylvania sites.
