New book Abandoned buildings and spaces create a special atmosphere. Some are crumbling relics, ready to be demolished; others are preserved monuments to yesteryear, capturing the best of human innovation in science and design. Each is a ruined beauty. From Roman remains to the engineering ingenuity of Brunel (both father and son) to unkept gardens and urban graffiti, this book captures 111 inspiring images, showcasing the depth of detail that is possible with black and white photography. The book is available from Amazon . The images are accompanied by text discussing the historical or societal context, as well as an appreciation of the photographic image. The text and photographs come from Tim Sandle, a science writer and journalist.
