Then & Now: Hybrid Images of a Deserted School in Detroit

detroit-then-now

Now these photo mash ups are just great. To imagine a building as it once was is one thing but to actually get to see it juxtaposed against the dilapidated building it now is is something altogether different.

DetroitUrbex has documented the passage of time superbly in this series of collages that show historical use and present conditions in abandoned structures through the lens of students and teachers overlaid with the haunting shots of an urban explorer.

The hybrid results span decades, including a combination of more-recent colour photographs and archival black-and-white ones, capturing ordinary activities and everyday people and putting them in a strange and haunting context.

A beautiful set of Photos, i especially like the one of the corridor. Amazing!!
