Much has been written about the recent announcement of the bankruptcy of Detroit, Michigan.

In a move that seems prescient now, Kevin Bauman started photographing abandoned houses in an affluent part of town about ten years ago.

He called the project 100 Abandoned Houses. That may seem like a lot, but the number of abandoned houses in Detroit is more like 12,000.
