Matt Emmett, 44, is a graphic designer at a toy company. He lives with his
two boys and partner in the south of the UK. A desire to discover and experience
new places is in his blood and he spent much of his 20s travelling
extensively throughout India and South East Asia.
These days he still enjoys getting out as often as he can to photograph the
abandoned places lying hidden from view all around us. For the last four
years he has been capturing the details and character of decaying architecture;
from industrial remnants to residential settings. It has fast become an
obsession. He enjoys the stories these places have to tell and the clues left
behind by previous occupants. This book is the culmination of many trips
around the UK and Europe.
Matt is a product ambassador for Pentax. He does commissioned work for a
variety of clients, runs photography workshops and sells his images through
several galleries. This is his first published
book. However, he plans to continue
shooting abandoned places and is looking
forward to number two.
