black holes and gray matter. in one thousand tangos.


Dave Jordano went back to his hometown of Detroit to show another perspective from the usual ruin porn prevalent online. He has provided info for every image which you should read including this for the bottom left photo:

"Mrs. Riley has been living in this house for over 45 years and the ivy has been growing on it for as long as she can remember. Structures such as these begin to take a life of their own, gracing themselves with symbolic undertones, such as longevity and perseverance. Many photographers have pictured this house from the side showing only the ivy, making it appear as if it’s an abandoned structure. I’d like to set the record straight and confirm that it isn’t.”
