Detroit vs. Nature

Andrew Moore

As the American economy continues to recover, one city remains in the midst of an identity crisis. Fast Company reports that a quarter of Detroit—nearly 40,000 acres—is sitting abandoned. That’s why Detroit’s mayor, Dave Bing, recently announced plans to demolish as many as 3,000 structures deemed unsafe. And it seems that the city might actually invest in massive urban renewal plans, including constructing new urban farming projects on sites where these decaying structures once stood. We’ve heard stories of artists and musicians settling down in Detroit, drawn by abundant empty space and cheap property values.

It’s no wonder photographers are snapping images of Detroit, drawn to the romance of a modern ghost town left to natural forces. Each photographer, however, comes with his own perspective. Andrew Moore‘s work often focuses on architecture, with eye for abandoned and dilapidated structures around the world, while James D. Griffioen, a Michigan native, views Detroit from a local’s perspective. Another collaboration between architect and DJ Matthew Radune and photographer Gregory Holm resulted in an entire house covered in ice. These portraits of a city capture the history, and potential of a place that is struggling to find a new way forward.

  4. ですが、そこまで肩肘を張ってかしこまる必要もありませんから、外のしを選ぶようにしましょう。表書きにはご挨拶、のし下には自分の苗字を記載するようにしておけば良いでしょう。
