A series photos by Kevin Bauman, who has been documenting abandoned houses in Detroit since the mid 90’s.
what an amazingly sad and aesthetic series.
It’s the American Dream!
(hmph [fart sound])
It really is a somber series.
Saw this on Behance a while back. Love seeing it again!g
The first is def. my favorite. The wet street in the snow looks like they just snow-plowed the roads…what a cool feeling. That house must have a fight club brewing somewhere inside…haha
really boring. the same angle, same composition, dull lighting (sometimes it works though). concept is good, but there should be a better way to fulfil it. although, first pic has something.

i love them, because although they are desolate buildings where there is no longer life they are all slightly quirky, interesting and different. Also, in the second and fourth pictures the abandoned biuldings are deffinatley on the same street and i thinmk they are either side of the same building. i wouldnt really want to live in the one in the middle
Photos are great! I can sit and stare at these houses and let my imagination run wild. I do not know very much about Detroit and from when these homes were built and actually inhabited, but they look so eerie. Great stuff!
An incredible series. I’m sure it either stemmed or stemmed from the “Object Orange” project.
Connecting with the gothic tradition, very interestng serie. Like Rachel Whiteread non active part of the project; Both very interested in topic like ruines and exterior, like shells, stared with a very new point of view (newer in case of Whiteread) (Take a look at her, she was the Turner Prize ’93 winner :)) http://www.tate.org.uk/modern/exhibitions/whiteread/biography.shtm
Like his work, anyway!!!
i LOVE those pictures!!!! and the first is also my favorite, i love the colors!
detroit!!! photos are wonderful. a great depiction of the city I know and love… a city of incredible beauty.
Fascinating. Sort of a familial, civilizational memento mori – those empty windows are eerie. Especially like no. 3 with the collapsed porch.
beautiful and sad…
very cool series
I want one! house!
Very .very . Talented.
