""I really wanted to see for myself what a submerged town looked like. And also, I wanted to see how nature had filled the void." To do so, the photographer @therealandrewmoore traveled to Montserrat, a British-colonized island in the Lesser Antilles that lost half its population (and it's capital, Plymouth) after a volcano erupted in the mid-1990s.
