100 Abandoned Houses
Kevin Bauman began photographing abandonment in Detroit in the 1990s. As the population fell from 2 million to 800,000, the once wealthy enclaves became 138 square miles of nearly 12,000 abandoned houses. 100 Abandoned Houses is just a sample of the, "concerned citizens, packs of wild dogs, 20 foot high piles of toilets, and houses with the facades torn off, filled with garbage," the photographer encountered.
