Abandoned: America’s Vanishing Landscape
by: Eric Holubow
For a relatively young country, America is rich in decaying ruins that cover its landscape. Through his striking photography, Eric Holubow provides a glimpse inside these perilousstructures to reveal the slow but unforgiving wear and tear that has befallen many of the country’s forgotten sites. Holubow’s compelling work forces us to pay attention to formerly grand, significant landmarks and institutions that have long been ignored, and reminds us of the tragic fate that they and everything we know eventually share.
