Detroit in Ruins. by The Elephant's Child

Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre’s extraordinary photographs document the remains of the decline of Detroit.  The motor city is filled with abandoned buildings.  It is a sad exhibition of waste and abandonment featured in the Guardian, a left-leaning newspaper in the United Kingdom.

The Guardian, of course, chooses to suggest that this is symbolic of the decline of America.  It is certainly a picture of the decline of a once prosperous city, and a once thriving auto industry. And it is unbearably sad.
