DETROIT: Duality of the "D"

So much has been written about Detroit's glorious past and its recent difficulties that I don't feel compelled to regurgitate it here except to say that beauty can be found in both the pretty and the gritty sides of the city. While "ruin porn" has become a dirty word to some, one must be careful to not take the grandiose pseudo-journalistic leap that urban decay represents the totality of Detroit. My photographs aren't intended to paint the city in a negative light or an overly rosy light either; they are simply captures of interesting places and moments in time. Thankfully, the city has seen an amazing upswing in the last few years...
