For as long as I can remember, I have had a fascination with abandoned things. I've spent countless hours either watching documentaries or scouring the internet for images of places that once thrived. When I saw this book sitting on our shelves, I knew I had to take a look. Andre Govia's photographs pulled me in and captured my attention. From churches to theaters and mental asylums to mansions, Govia has traversed the planet, taking some of the most haunting pictures I have seen to date. Photography experts and novices alike will be able to appreciate Govia's work and the way he has captured the derelict, yet beautiful nature of the things and places he has photographed. --Heather H.
