Lost America is the name of Troy Paiva’s photographic project in which he has explored and captured the abandoned urban side of America by the light of full moon.

His lighting techniques are simply amazing and the atmosphere of his work makes me search for words! As I read in his site: In addition to countless contributory appearances in print and on the web, Troy’s surrealist night photography has been published in two monographs: "Lost America" in 2003 and the award winning "Night Vision" in 2008. Both books examine the evolution and eventual abandonment of the communities, structures and social iconography spawned during 20th century America's western expansion--and the modern Urban Exploration culture that finds strange comfort in dancing through its ruins.”
