detroit: from rock-city to ruins by frank schwere

german born photographer frank schwere’s images depict the decay of america’s once shining beacon of industrialization. empty streets, burnt out shells of houses, industrial ruins, abandoned public buildings, vacant lots, derelict churches, weeds and potholes are today the face of detroit. devoid of humans, these images are reminiscent of war zones or natural disasters but in fact portray the results of failed politics and human neglect. exhibit at two rooms gallery through june 18th 2011. by dd
