A manual typewriter coated with dust. What kind of story would it type?  Perhaps it would tell us who left his umbrella next to the clock on the old wooden desk under the stairs?    


Follow Andre Govia's camera as it uncovers the stories in some of the most amazing abandoned places.  A poet of the eye.

Remarkably haunting.Andre Govia has traveled through Europe on a Urbexing tour (Urbexing The present participle verb form of urbex. Urbexing is the act of exploring urban areas that are generally off-limits to regular civilians.)The images in this collection are breathtaking and thought provoking to say the least.I enjoyed looking at all of them in detail. My favorites in this collection were the images that were not altered. Europe has so much history and these pictures bring this to light.Amazing architecture combined with the element of decay create a mysterious and emotional set of images.


In this modern age where everything that is "new" has more value it is nice to see the past being viewed for the beauty that it offers.
