I am so pleased to see your Heros being featured, Ralph. They deserve it and so do you!

Heroes: Detroit Fire Department

"Until you risk your life as collateral to save another; you will never understand this job" ~ unknown Detroit firefighter

Photographer Ralph Jones has been documenting his US hometown of Detroit, Michigan; providing a glimpse into the joys, struggles, and uniqueness of the city and her people. He is in process of publishing a book called Motor City is Burning which highlights firefighters, true heroes of Detroit.

As a city with thousands of abandoned structures, and an epidemic of arson, tireless firefighters are pushed even further in an already challenging job to keep the city safe. In recent years, budget cuts, station closings, and equipment shortages have only made it more difficult.

These are few selections from Ralph's compelling photo series, check out the Aminus3 Thread gallery for more photos and information, and please support Ralph and his work by sharing this gallery from the links below. Click here
