Rainy Conversation with Photographer and Author Matthew Christopher

It was raining for a week straight here in Texas and the sun is slowly peeking out this week.  Even though I love the rain, it was definitely not the best time to move to a different city. But I will talk more about that in my next post. This week, I wanted to share my interview with Matthew Christopher, better known as the guy behind Abandoned America.

A little bit about Abandoned America

Abandoned America started as more of a hobby that Matthew enjoyed doing. Throughout the years, it has grown into something more. Matthew believes in preserving the beauty and the history of these abandoned and decayed buildings. As stated on the website, "Abandoned America is committed to partnering with historical preservation organizations, site owners, and communities to ensure that even when it is impossible to retain a historic structure, its unique characteristics, stories, and social impact are not forgotten and can be shared with the world at large."

Matthew has two books on Abandoned America. The first book is called Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences and Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream.

He loves photography, museums, traveling and watching the History channel. He is an interesting person and one that I had the pleasure of getting to know.

Watch the video below to listen to our conversation including some of his wonderful photography!
