100 Abandoned Houses

These straight on photos of abandoned houses by Kevin Bauman document the decline of Detroit in stark fashion. When I looked at this photo series, I first thought how amazing the houses were and imaged how nice many of them would be fixed up. Then I wondered where were the photos taken. I had an inkling it was Detroit and was right. Finally it made me curious. Where do auto company executives live now a days? Do they live in Detroit? Are they safely tucked behind gates? Maybe they live far away from the blighted city and jet in on their private planes. Do they even bother to come to Motor City anymore or do they discuss what size cars to build and what their stock options and retirement packages should be on conference calls? If you you have any idea leave a note.
