Since the second half of the 20th century, Christian religion has seen an increasing decline in the Western world. While a regular visit to the local church was considered the norm for the majority in the 1960s, studies show that the percentage of people declaring they do not believe in God has been rising in the last decades. Churches are loosing followers, congregations are regrouping to survive. Churches that were built to host hundreds of worshippers are closed. While most are razed or get converted for other uses, some are left abandoned, open to scrappers and all kind of visitors. Their magnificent but dilapidated architecture offers a visual interpretation of the state of religion, and especially Christianity, accross the Western world.
