motor heart

10 Jun

i like how this one shot from ny-based photographer sean hemmerle captures the historical narrative arc of the mirage grandeur of the city: put your hands up for detroit.

the advent of the car drove the city’s prosperity last century, only to slip into dramatically faded disrepair in recent years.

the photo shows the michigan theatre being used as a car park in 2008.
