DETROIT - OCTOBER 2014
Last October I took a trip back home and had a chance to stop in Detroit for a few photos. Detroit is an interesting place. You can consider it a city on the rebound, a decaying city, a city that has potential or a city with no future. It all varies from the viewpoint of who you talk to. Regardless, I hope that my home state's major city continues to move forward in a positive way. It can be done!
If you've never been down to the city, there are talks that the old Michigan Central Station is going to be renovated. You can read more about it here: LINK. The building has been in decay for years, nonetheless it is a beautiful structure. It will be interesting to see if such a historic building can be restored.
There are also a few photos from The Heidelberg project which is a bit of a reclamation project in its own right. Think of a very eclectic art exhibit, the twist is the art exhibit is the integrated into the neighborhood itself. Also on site is the Detroit Industrial Gallery from artist Tim Burke. You can learn more about the exhibit here.
If you're ever in the Detroit area these areas are definitely worth checking out.
Now...picture time...I decided to process these in black and white. Generally when you see photos of the Heidelberg Project, the photos are exhibited in color (it is a very colorful art exhibit, which makes sense) However, I wanted to take a different approach with these images. Enjoy.
