Abandoned Planet showcases the haunting poetry of these spaces and takes you on an journey through a world most will never see. The pathos, the magic, the profound sadness of each image invites you to contemplate not only the eventual failure of all human endeavour but also that difficult to describe, indistinct yearning for a world less civilised, a nostalgia for wild spaces - for a life less tame.
Govia's approach to photography is very cinematic he aims to create an ambiance that will really put the viewer in the scene, using either lighting set-ups that he brings along with him on his explorations, or through post-production alteration. It's sheer ruin porn. - Fast Company"
