Back on the road after spending a little time in Detroit with my loved ones. In just a few short years, my hometown has come such a long way—from the crumbling ruins of a bankrupt post-industrial urban disaster zone, to America's great comeback city with a revitalized downtown brimming with new ambition and optimism. Artists are creating here, entrepreneurs are launching here, investors are already rocketing the price of real estate and I fully expect, in time, Detroit will be one of the greatest cities in America. My only hope is that no one gets left behind. ⠀ ⠀ I spent more than ten years photographing the ruins of Detroit and loved every minute spent shooting the gritty textures of its decay. There is a haunting beauty to be found wandering the ruins of any point in human civilization. To explore what’s been left behind. To imagine the lives that lived before. To get lost in the damp, dark maze of the unknown, absorb the quiet, apocalyptic atmosphere… and wonder if this is what it would feel like if the whole world really did fall apart. ⠀ ⠀ This shot is of my brilliant photojournalist friend Randy Wilcox of Detroit, as we explored the abandoned Packard Plant a few years back. My favorite of all the Detroit ruins with my favorite of all the Detroit photographers. Good memories from my hometown Detroit.
I'm back ❤️

A shot from Haarlem in the Netherlands, where I've spent the most time in the EU. It's the prettiest little city east of the Atlantic, don't you agree? 🙂 --- After spending most of this summer in the USA with my loved ones, I'm getting on a plane this week and heading back to the EU. I'll be making my way to #Madrid to shoot some commercial work over the next month, and I think it's high time for a photowalk. 🙂 --- Announcement coming soon... See you in Madrid!!! 🇪🇸 --- Photo by @hillaryfox
The Road through Valley of Fire. Photo by @hillaryfox I've learned that the old adage is true: when you're going through hell, keep going. Every day, every hour, every minute, it gets better. Just keep moving forward. "The most beautiful people I've known are those who have known trials, have known struggles, have known loss, and have found their way out of the depths." – Elisabeth Kübler-Ross #911 #grief #loss
Last night the Northern Lights were on display here in the Upper Peninsula! Wow!!! I forgot my tripod in the trunk in Amsterdam, and my wide angle won't switch into manual focus after I dropped it into a dune... but I still managed to get a little something by setting the Canon on a tree stump and holding my breath! 😆 SO AWESOME!!! #michigan #up #upperpeninsula #northernlights #auroraborealis #travelphotography #nightsky #naturephotography #landscape #landscapephotography #ongoingpro
