Monday Photography: Cities in Dust
- Slate features a slideshow discussing Detroit’s Beautiful Ruins. “It’s like Berlin or Warsaw in 1945. Just as in post-World War II photos of those ruined cities, the most shocking thing is to see people carrying on their everyday lives in the midst of so much physical destruction.” [Via]
- More such photos appear in Time’s piece on Detroit’s Beautiful, Horrible Decline.
