Commissioned by Smithsonian Magazine, a tour of nineteen of America's ghost towns features coverage of such deserted places as Bodie, California; Gold Point, Nevada; and Steins, New Mexico; depicted at dusk while using long exposures and ambiance-capturing light technology.

Bodie, a ghost town in the Sierras beyond Yosemite, is preserved by California park rangers in a state of arrested decay. It's a magical place, one of my favorites, but I have never seen it as this German photographer depicts it, bathed in the surreal light of car headlights. Here, you can feel the presence of the ghosts-in the schoolroom, the general store, and lodging house; most of all in the 1940s car with its gaping windshield, abandoned in the long grass. Wim Wenders, poet and filmmaker of lonely places, writes in the preface: "These buildings...suddenly have great dignity. They stand there gazing into the camera like very old people who have never before had their pictures taken, after a lifetime of work and sacrifices." (Michael Webb is the book reviewer for LA Architect magazine.)

Having been to many of the places described here with my camera, I can only say the photos are stunning....and anyone who doesnt think the western sky can be that blue needs to go to a few of these places in the spring or fall when the sky is clear.

While Bodie is my favorite, a lot of others such as Silver City Idaho get less attention.

It's also sad to note that many of the unprotected places are disappearing as more and more nincompoops on fourwheelers destroy and steal what little remains.

Impossibly beautiful photos of an abandoned past. This book raises so many questions. Why did they leave it all behind? What use could be made of it today?

Stunning photography - absolutely enjoyable.
