Machu Picchu, lost for four centuries after the Spanish conquest of the Inca empire; Bodie, a ’49ers mining town, abandoned when the gold ran out; Nara Dreamland in Japan, an amusement park that couldn’t compete with Disneyland... These are among the 60 places described and photographed by Richard Happer. They range from single buildings to entire islands (St Kilda and Easter Island), each location abandoned after falling foul of economic downturn, technological progress, politics, natural disaster or war.
