For countless causes, natural and human, people have newly abandoned or if not forsaken a number of places around the world — great and little, aged and latest. Gather imagery of empty regions into a single photo essay, one can get a sagacity of what the world might look like if humans were to disappear from the earth overall. Collected here are recent scenes from nuclear-exclusion zones, blighted urban neighborhoods, towns where residents left to escape violence, unsold developments built during the real estate boom, ghost towns, and more.
