Urban Exploring in Detroit with Chris Luckhardt
The collapse of Detroit has become the story of legend - a once thriving and proud city having fallen into ruin. Urban explorers from around the world converge on Detroit to capture a glimpse of a city’s former glory. After hitting bottom, Detroit is now entering what many people call its Renaissance; the city is rapidly becoming a technology and entrepreneurial hotbed and continues to have a thriving arts scene. However, thousands of empty buildings (homes, schools, churches, factories, and more) continue to silently decay with the occasional visit from eager explorers and photographers. Chris Luckhardt is a Canadian photographer, based in Toronto. Follow him on on Twitter and Facebook. See also his Abandoned Hashima Island pictures on TotallyCoolPix.
