Welcome to Rust Belt Photography

I took a very interesting trip to Detroit this past April. The first question Iím always asked is ďWhy did I go to Detroit?Ē  Well, thatís easy - Itís a city full of abandoned buildings that once made up the backbone of our industrial midwest.  My primary goal was to photograph the two major abandoned buildings in Detroit - The Packard plant and the Fisher Automotive plant. Additionally, I spent some of my time photographing the city, its homes, and many other abandoned buildings and churches.  And although I like to photograph people, the streets of the city are eerily quiet - even downtown. There was an interesting article in the April 14, 2013 edition of The New York Times about one manís attempt to revitalize the city. Click here for a link to the article.

If you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact me.  For those of you who would be interested in in a photographic workshop in Detroit, please email me and Iíd be happy to help you set up a trip.
