    what an amazingly sad and aesthetic series.

  • It’s the American Dream!

    (hmph [fart sound])

  • Maciel

    It really is a somber series.

  • gabe

    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

  • Lauris

    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 :))

    detroit!!! photos are wonderful. a great depiction of the city I know and love… a city of incredible beauty.

  • Peter

    Fascinating. Sort of a familial, civilizational memento mori – those empty windows are eerie. Especially like no. 3 with the collapsed porch.

  • sr

  • wwwooooow!

  • Helle Bolther

    Very .very . Talented.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
