Join us for an evening with Matthew Christopher, learning what it is like to visit and photograph abandoned sites. Matthew Christopher has had an interest in abandoned sites since he was a child, but started documenting them a decade ago while researching the decline of the state hospital system. His two books, “Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream” and “Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences” and his website and podcast, also titled Abandoned America, have chronicled the stories of modern ruins across the United States and gained international attention. Matthew has an MFA in Fine Art Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology and has taught photography at a college level and now teaches photography workshops. He has had gallery shows across the US, lectured on abandoned spaces and mental health history, and his work has been in dozens of publications and media outlets including the New York Times, LA Times, ABC and NBC News, PDN, The Atlantic, Photographer’s Forum, The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, and many more.
