Stop the presses! Photographer documents newspaper's eerie abandoned printing presses

These intriguing images take viewers inside the remains of what were once a newspaper’s vibrant printing presses.

Matthew Christopher’s eerie shots of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s previous presses highlight not only the scale of a newspaper’s printing operation but also the intricacies that are involved.

In the shots, newspapers still remain in rollers and metallic printing plates sit propped to the side.

Renowned for his abandoned-location photography, Christopher, 39, was granted permission to visit the presses toward the end of 2016, one year after the Post-Gazette had relocated. (Caters News)
