Perhaps no place exemplifies the failures of a post-industrialized economy better than Detroit, a city that has lost more than half of its population over the past 60 years. In an effort to provide perspective on the dramatic changes taking place in his hometown, photographer Kevin Bauman began capturing images of the abandoned buildings that increasingly dotted the landscape. The resulting project titled 100 Abandoned Houses, paints a compelling portrait of a dying city where stately homes that were once vibrant and alive, are now bleak and boarded. The effect is equal parts beautiful and tragic, pointing to the challenges that lie ahead as we attempt to re-imagine our urban centers.
