The Ruins of Detroit by Marchand and Meffre

In the United States, few cities have felt the burn of urban decay more than Detroit. To capture its slow fade into history, photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre explored some of Detroit’s dying landmarks for their photo series The Ruins of Detroit. As the industrial revolution came to a close and race riots crippled a once bustling city, many buildings throughout Detroit fell into disrepair and eventual abandonment. Today, visitors to Detroit can experience two sides of the city– the revitalized, re-invested downtown area, and the high-rises and industrial complexes which crumble around it.

Re: The Ruins of Detroit by Marchand and Meffre

I watch a programme set in Detroit and the place is certainly sadly neglected now since the motor industry went. The buildings that remain are beautiful and I'd love to explore the place

One of the most beautiful thing I ever saw on internet

Felt just like the same when I saw the first vagina on the net

Re: The Ruins of Detroit by Marchand and Meffre

Great pics, very powerful, shows just how the once mighty have fallen. There was a time people could never imagine Detroit falling by the wayside.

The beginning of the end for the American empire?

Re: The Ruins of Detroit by Marchand and Meffre

Never understood why when a building becomes unoccupied, all the paint flakes off
