Ruins of Detroit

http://www.marchandmeffre.com/detroit/index.html

I really liked “Ruins of Detroit.” Its story reminded me of my home town in the outskirts of Pittsburgh. When the steel industry moved out of the area, half of the town was completely abandoned, leaving most of the buildings empty and forgotten. The pictures make me feel indifferent as I find beauty in the ruins of the buildings, but, also, feel sorry for whats left of them. The pictures accuratley portray a feeling of emptiness, while also revealing a calmness.  My favorite picture is of the Ballroom of American Hotel.   The architecture of the building in juxtapose with the debris and the sun shining through the skylight draws your attention to the center of the picture. I like it because it represents the ultimate end as nothing more could happen to worsen the condition of the room, therefore everything is done.
