Photo project highlighting Detroit’s deterioration into a “ghost-town” through abandoned buildings, by Detroiturbex. It is a huge project and well worth exploring, some outstanding architectural photos. Click to enlarge images.
This part of the project features Cass Technical High School. The photos below reveal a history encapsulated into single images. Room for room. Photos from the school’s past – a past full of vibrancy and potential – superimposed onto the most recent images of a decayed, lifeless, shell. Desks, chairs and equipment left in place. Tragic loss. The first one is my favorite.
