Title: The Ruins of Detroit
Marchand, Romain Meffre
The Ruins of Detroit is a five year collaboration
between French photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre. Together
they have documented Detroit's abandoned buildings, thus bringing to
light the current state of 'Motor City'through a cinematic series of
starkly beautiful photographs.
Shooting with a large format, custom made camera, taking advantage of
natural light and using long exposures, the images embody the unique
atmosphere of each location. Marchand and Meffre's work retains a
formal quality and is conceived as a document, giving the viewer a
surreal glimpse of Detroit's former glory.
The Ruins of Detroit is also available in French.

2012 at the Wilmotte Gallery at Lichfields Studios in London.
