Detroit city was my first journey using funds from my Getty Editorial Grant. I choose Detroit for a few reasons; I had never been there, I had long been reading about its demise juxtaposed against its creative rebuilding, it is fairly close for me ( 1.5 hr flight), relatively inexpensive and I was incredibly intrigued.
What I found was incredible broken and unbroken beauty and people with a lot of heart. Some living in third world conditions but still full of hope for the future and with dreams on the tip of their tongues. People are truly creative in the way they live as well as artits in vibrant art scene.
