I found this great site, one of the handful of interesting things I have found using StumbleUpon, called 100 Abandoned Houses. It is a collection of photographs by Kevin Bauman of abandoned houses in Detroit, Michigan.
The abandoned houses project began innocently enough roughly ten years ago. I actually began photographing abandonment in Detroit in the mid 90’s as a creative outlet, and as a way of satisfying my curiosity with the state of my home town. I had always found it to be amazing, depressing, and perplexing that a once great city could find itself in such great distress, all the while surrounded by such affluence.
