These are the stunning images of some of Americas most breathtaking churches - all of which are abandoned. Matthew Christopher travels around the United States taking shots of its most beautiful decaying wonders.

He shot those in his churches series in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he works as a photographer and lecturer. Matthew’s fascination with such abandoned spaces started when he was a child when he enjoyed looking at artwork set in buildings that have since decayed. (Caters News)
