Mission Statement:
To document the city in an attempt to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of Detroit, her buildings, and her people.

So much of what I do never gets published here. I was updating my resume and client list the other day when I decided to post some of the images I have done commercially.
Young Detroit Builders is a non profit group dedicated to teaching disadvantaged teens building trades skills. Every year they produce a talent show to raise funds.

Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes.
