Description:
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.
