I’m as tired of this fetish we seem to have for Detroit’s worst images of urban decay.  (A) Detroit’s not the only once strong industrial urban center that’s fallen on hard times and (B) it’s been done so much at this point, going back to the well again borders on pornography. 

That aside, Kevin Bauman’s 100 Abandoned Houses (which is actually more like 139) photoset is quite impressive. It could easily broaden its scope past Detroit and achieve a much greater effect. [via]
