The Ruins of Detroit, Photographs of a City In Decline

The Guardian explores the amazing photos of abandoned buildings in Detroit taken by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre, which are featured in their book The Ruins of Detroit.

Until the 1960s, Detroit was one of America’s most important cities, a hub of industry with a population of almost two million and a skyline to rival that of any U.S. city. Its buildings were monuments to its success and vitality in the first half of the twentieth century.
