Detroit's Urban Meadows

Detroit, Michigan

Detroit has over 10,000 vacant homes. The combination of prevalent abandonments and rampant arson has led the city to purchase entire blocks and raze them. An eerie landscape of urban infrastructure dividing overgrown meadows is all the remains in some neighborhoods. The following photos were taken in various neighborhoods in Detroit.
