There is something poetic about seeing these once-bustling places empty, with some in the process of being taken back by nature. It resonated with me after seeing photographs of empty or nearly empty city streets and reduced pollution in many places during the current COVID-19 lockdown.

Many of the photos are breathtakingly beautiful. This book would be a great gift for a photography enthusiast. It could also be useful for writers or role-playing gamers for inspirational purposes.

Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Amber Books Ltd., via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
