There is something so terribly poignant about an empty space which once throbbed with life. Within that poignancy lays a tragic beauty, the ghosts of dreams and the shriveled roots of hope. This collection are images of such sites, some of which have, poetically, now been reclaimed by nature. Among the offerings is the town of Pripyat, abandoned following the Chernobyl Disaster and a former Namibian settlement which was hastily constructed upon the discovery of diamond stocks only to be left to rot once the gems ran dry.
