The images in this volume have been selected from the archives of Govia’s work from travels to 800 locations, and represent some of the most beautiful nightmares one could ever hope to encounter. His elegant photographs capture haunting and sometimes downright eerie images, selected from hospitals, schools, houses, hotels, and asylums, all forgotten by humanity, but not by time. 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 around the world, documenting our Abandoned Planet in the process.
