Where form meets function

We first mentioned the photo work of Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre back in 2010 when their exhibition, “The Ruins of Detroit” opened at the Stockholm’s Gun Gallery. Those photos collected and shared with the world the absolute architectural history of Detroit city and the unfortunate state of ruin that many of the metropolis’ buildings stood. Those images and moe are now collected in the new book under the same name.

The Ruins of Detroit features more than 180 color plates depicting the duo’s work and should be considered a document into the fall of a once beautiful city – which we hope will very soon turn around and return to its glory. Published by Steidl. Available from Amazon.
