the ruins of detroit

why am i so drawn (as many of us are) to these images of 20th century decay? i think that seeing these very thoughtful structured human efforts returning to their more organic roots is what i find so appealing.

these images are from yves marchand and romain meffre's the ruins of detroit and are a haunting look at the decline of america's motor city.

it's easy to forget that these images aren't from the chernobyl disaster.

the images were all so stunning i could have posted each and every one of them. marchand and meffre have two other series, one documenting east german factories the other documenting american theatres, that are also worth looking at.
