Ransom Riggs is an American writer best known for his childrens books. He decided to travel to Europe to capture the interiors of abandoned and untouched houses for his last novel: Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children. But when he got there and started to explore, he discovered something he wasnt expecting to see. Some of the houses he had access to, had been empty for decades, and everything inside was untouched. Now Riggs wants to show that these houses arent old forgotten wastes of space, but historical icons that capture a precious moment in time.
