Who knew things that were decaying would be interesting?
I certainly did not when I first took a peek inside. Once I got past the cover though, I was immersed in the excellent photography by Nathan Troi Anderson and J.K. Putnam. Not only that, but it made me more aware of the world around me and the stuff that is decaying within it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I live in rural Georgia and I see a lot of houses that have been abandoned and have been engulfed by vegetation. I hadn't really thought about how those houses have decayed, but once I took a look at some of the pictures within Decay, I was reminded of them. The photography is stunning. The detail to which both photographers envelope the reader with is astonishing. This is a great book for anyone interested in the world around them.
There were a few things that I didn't like about the book, but they were minor. There is no text beyond a forward from each of the photographers and a afterword by Majeed. There are no descriptions or titles of the pictures. This wasn't really a big deal unless the picture was really tight on something and I couldn't tell what it was I was looking at. A few wide shots would have also been helpful in those instances. Other than that, the book is magnificent and a joy to look at.
Additionally, there is a CD that has royalty versions of 50 of the pictures that one can use for graphic designs.
