100 Abandoned Houses in Detroit by Kevin Bauman

I knew the housing market was on a huge decline, but these pictures the problem to a whole new light.  Kevin Bauman began photographing abandoned houses in his home town of Detroit, Michigan 10 years ago.  He started taking black and whites then converted to taking pictures in color.  Soon he started 100 Abandoned Houses in Detroit, a website with a gallery of all of the houses he captured.  In reality, he says there are actually around 12,000 abandoned houses.  He also says Detroit’s rapid population decline has led to the occurrence of abandoned houses.  If you are interested in checking out the whole 100, check out his website.  You can even purchase limited production prints.
