Detroit + Ruins

The book "The Ruins of Detroit" is a hauntingly beautiful documentation of Detroit by French photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre that shows one of America's most desserted and run down cities.

A quote from Marchand and Meffre:
"Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies and their changes, small pieces of history in suspension."
It's truly as if there was just a massive exodus from the place. The library shown below still has books in it! Such a strange and depressing phenomenon.

A melted clock in a highschool. Mesmerizing.

Just gives you the chills, doesn't it?

Spotted at Denver Post.
