Slideshow of 100 Abandoned Homes in Detroit

by John Glynn on August 19, 2009

This is a view of disaster through an artistic lens. There are some downright gorgeous shots in here, every one of them representing a story of tragedy, loss, failure, and hurt. A sign of the times, Detroit has had as many headlines as any other city as a representation of the worst economic conditions in our nation in ‘The Great Recession’.

Remember the mood only 6 months ago? While I think the recovery rally cries are a bit premature, it certainly does not feel as likely as it once did that we could see a full wide-scale meltdown or economic collapse.

We’ll come back, and the beginning of that long process is underway. I’d love to see these same 100 photos updated in a few years.
