detroit_station_hdr_finalIn September of 2005 on my way to Toronto, Canada I got lost trying to find the Ambassador bridge in Detroit and wound up in front of this majestic building. I took several photos of it not thinking anything about it and forgetting totally about this place. Later that year I saw the building on a Superbowl commercial for Apples Ipod featuring rapper Eminem, I still did not know what the building was. Once again I forgot about until I read an article about ruin photography which in the photography industry is refer to as ruin porn and Detroit was referred to as the Mecca for this modern photographic phenomenon. There in the article the building was featured and is know as the Michigan Central Station.

Today there is renovation in the air and the project has a website.
