A Tour of Abandoned Houses in Detroit

 

Photographer Kevin Bauman’s 100 Abandoned Houses project started over a decade ago in the mid 90s. For him it was a way of exploring his hometown of Detroit. He found it amazing, depressing and perplexing that a once great city could find itself in such great distress.

As Bauman ventured around his city he encountered entire neighbourhoods abandoned, packs of wild dogs, towering piles of rubbish, and concerned citizens trying to cope.

The gallery below is a small selection from the 105 houses Bauman has posted to his site. Which in turn is a mere fraction of the thousands of abandoned homes around Detroit.
