• Abandoned Detroit School Given Life Through Photos

    Lewis Cass Technical High School, demolished in 2011, was one of Detroit's largest high schools. In 2005 the main building was abandoned with the remaining students occupying an adjacent addition.
  • Utilizing images of the school in its heyday transposed over photos of the neglected building, Detroiturbex succeeds in evoking a state of Detroit's decline.
  • Population and industry in Detroit has declined remarkably in recent years.
  • As a result schools and homes which were quickly built to support a growing industry in the 20s and 30s have since been abandoned, subject to arson or demolished.
  • Detroiturbex.com is a website and photo project which documents a changing Detroit.
