LECTURE: ABANDONED AMERICA MATTHEW CHRISTOPHER WRITER & PHOTOGRAPHER The desire to gain a greater understanding of our past has driven archaeologists, artists, and scholars from across the world to study the vestiges of lifestyles and places that vanished. Through his collection of writing and photography, Matthew Christopher has spent the last decade documenting some of the ruins of America in our time. His work spans architectural treasures left to the elements and then all too often lost forever. This lecture is FREE to PHLF Members.
