New photo gallery on Detroit and its struggles

On Oct. 9, 2015, I published 25 new photographs I took in Detroit in September. The series focusses on neighborhoods I visited without any itinerary beyond seeing how ordinary Detroit residents are living their lives. I did have some specific goals, including photographing a house I lived in as a baby. Every single street I detoured on revealed stories of economic distress, abandonment, de-population, and economic turmoil. Of course there are pockets of nice areas, near Lake St. Claire and clustered around downtown. But you do not have to stray far to see the larger canvas.
