100 Abandoned Houses

100 Abandoned Houses

Detroit is a really interesting city in a number of ways. It has produced so many talented musicians and producers.

It is also very interesting in terms of the decline of the city after the closing down of many of the factories that were there, having been the main city of car production in America. This has left a lot of poverty and abandoned homes and buildings.

This series of 100 abandoned houses reminds me of Tom Wood’s work. They document, and do highlight the poverty that is throughout the city, but do not cast any judgement. They allow you to form your own stories about what may have gone on in the homes and what has been lost.
