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.
