Kevin Bauman started photographing abandonment in Detroit about ten years ago, as a creative outlet and to satisfy his curiosity with the state of his hometown. He had always found it to be amazing, depressing, and perplexing that a once great city could find itself in such great distress, all the while surrounded by such affluence. As the number of images grew, and a documentary style emerged, he decided to name the series 100 Abandoned Houses. Once a city of almost 2 million citizens, Detroit has since lost over more than half of its population over the last 60 years and now counts about 12,000 abandoned houses. That being said, Kevin Bauman is not likely to be threaten to run out of abandonment content any time soon.
