Publisher's description: The images within Abandoned Planet have been selected from the archives of photographer Andrew Govia's work from travels to 800 locations around the world. These photographs represent the most hauntingly beautiful nightmares one could ever hope to encounter... Revered by his peers within the "Urbex" community, Govia is a legendary photographer of abandoned and decrepit buildings. He's taken his cinematic approach to photography to more than twenty countries, documenting our Abandoned Planet in the process. His elegant photographs capture haunting and sometimes downright creepy images, selected from hospitals, schools, houses, hotels and asylums, all frozen in time. This unique collection follows the movements of a man who is both an intrepid explorer and talented lensman.
