Detroit's Beautiful, Horrible Decline


I've been pretty intrigued by the slew of reports coming out of Detroit about its decaying infrastructure. Journalists make it seem like Detroit's current economic status defines why it's in such a way--like they're just finding out that Detroit is a piece of shit. I think it's an interesting media phenomenon, but the actual reason I follow the story so closely has to do with my true infatuation with the derelicte. It's so hideous and beautiful at the same time. Time Magazine has done a really cool "photo essay" about it called "Detroit's Beautiful, Horrible Decline," and I think it's worth a looksie. Just follow the link.

Ron Asheton 7/17
