OVERVIEW
From ships left high and dry after the retraction of the Aral Sea to Titanic at the bottom of the Atlantic, from a rusting railway graveyard in Bolivia to abandoned World War II cars in a Swedish forest, from aircraft frozen in time in Antarctica to streetcars sidelined in Brooklyn, New York, Abandoned Wrecks explores over 100 fascinating sites from all around the world. Aside from the peculiar beauty of rusting hulks on forgotten battlefields, anemone-covered battleships on the seabed and cars being consumed by forests, the images and text introduce us to unusual stories: how a car standing on its nose in the Nevada desert has inspired an artist into making a design feature from junked cars, a Canadian schooner that sank in 1885 and rests preserved to this day in a harbor in Lake Huron, and a space shuttle left gathering dust in a hangar. With 170 outstanding color photographs of cars, trains, ships, submarines, tanks, aircraft and even a space shuttle, Abandoned Wrecks is a brilliant pictorial work showcasing these battered time capsules and their stories of wars, natural disasters, changing fortunes, tastes and fashions.
