Why do some cities, towns and villages fall into disuse and ruin? This book explores the world’s lost settlements: the remains of ancient Greek and Roman, Aztec and Inca cities, gold-rush ghost towns and abandoned Soviet troop stations, and sites devastated by natural or man-made disasters. The photographs capture the strange beauty of these deserted places, whether rusting industrial hulks or crumbling ruins disappearing, like the Khmer temples in Cambodia, under encroaching jungle.
