Beneath the Veneer

 

Came across this via The House Next Door.  Photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre have a beautiful photo essay called The Ruins of Detroit, which sublimely captures the juxtaposition of the neglect of Detroit amidst a burgeoinging revitalization process.  The pictures are stunning.

They also have two other equally captivating photo essays to peruse, one on the industrial vestiges of East Germany, and the other on forgotten theaters in America.  It's rare that a picture will so immediately grab my attention, but these all did it.
