By SIMON TOMLINSON
These haunting photographs capture decaying elements of American society by documenting the factories, schools and churches abandoned over time.
Taken by Matthew Christopher, who lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the collection of pictures show a variety of empty buildings in various states of disrepair.
Some buildings appear untouched, with all of its furnishings absolute pristine, while others depict how nature has reclaimed the buildings and turned them into ruins.
