When All The People Have Gone The Great Buildings Of Earth Will Look Like This.

Matt Emmett has been shooting under the name 'Forgotten Heritage Photography' at abandoned locations for the last three years. Since he first climbed the fences surrounding a derelict jet engine research establishment in the UK, he has been hooked on the thrill of photographing the amazing and otherworldly scenes found at many of these forgotten and secretive locations.

You can see more of his work on his Facebook page.
