After reading John Patrick Leary’s ‘Detroitism,’ you’ll probably agree that the world still could use a new view of Detroit. There is something that still captures people’s emotions and imagination when confronted with these kinds of images. We need to move forward from overexposed images of the decaying city, but a new exhibit, The Ruins of Detroit has been put up recently at the Wilmotte Gallery. If you are travelling abroead, you can check out these hauntingly beautiful photos by notorious ‘ruin pornographers’, Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre now on display in London for yourself.
