Product Description

Woodward Avenue is one of five of Detroit's big Avenues and goes from Downtown to the wealthy suburbs. The photographs comprised in this book were taken in 2015, partly on foot and partly from the co-driver’s seat. By sequencing them in the form of a book the pictures convey the changing of the fabric of the city along the way and thus the changing social and economic circumstances of the various parts of Detroit that were traversed. Besides that taking pictures from a moving car hints at Detroit's history as an origin of the automobile, the ways in which the cityscape is constructed in terms of its visibility to motorists and the historically close connections between photography and the street. The pictures taken as a pedestrian cover some of the distance that later was traversed by car. Thus contrasting two speeds of movement, pertaining to different kinds of mobility and differing levels of peoples’ access to the city.
