Let me just say, that I love Detroit. The city holds a special place in my heart because the residents are so amazing and kind and tough. Capitalism has seemingly left this city behind to co-mingle with nature and the results can be at times heartbreaking and at other times magical and almost otherworldly. I think the 100 Abandoned Houses project captures this feeling and the images below are some from that project. Of course I pulled some of the photos where the gardens have continued growing. Or that one – where I can see the urban farm or restored forest so clearly. Nature seemingly will swallow our creations eventually, hopefully. Maybe you want to check out Alan Weisman’s book, A World Without Us on these thoughts.
