The Haunting Beauty of Detroit’s Abandoned Buildings (TIME)

Camera Lens

The city of Detroit filed for bankruptcy last week. The filing will impact many people, but will hopefully also serve as a “moment where maybe Detroit can start to move forward,” as Mariam Noland, president of the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan, said in a recent Wall Street Journal article. Some of Detroit’s neighborhoods have experienced a revival in recent years, but others have declined, as evidenced by the buildings that stand abandoned and crumbling. View these buildings through the lenses of Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre in this slideshow from TIME.
