Earlier this month I blogged about Detroit as America’s most epic urban failure. My buddy Detroit Rich just tipped me off to a depressingly beautiful Time magazine photo essay of Detroit—Detroit’s Beautiful, Horrible Decline—which features the photography of Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre. Also check out the Marchand and Meffre “Ruins of Detroit” photo essay on their web site.
