Superb Photography - Amazing Story of Detroit,
This review is from: The Ruins of Detroit (Hardcover)
This is one of the most amazing books that I have seen in a long long time. Besides being quite large, it is well-crafted both physically and content-wise. The photographs are printed in such a large format that tiny details come bouncing out.
One does not need to be from Detroit to see the significance and sadness behind the images- they are universal. But the opening essay on the city's history is consise yet enlightening and short narratives by the photographers throughout the book help navigate the scenes. Industry at its worst.
The book is filled with artwork and is a work of art itself.
