Urban Decay - A Forgotten Door - Detroit, MI - Dec. 1992

Urban Decay - A Forgotten Door - Detroit, MI - Dec. 1992
Urban Decay - Forgotten Door
Back in 1992 I was in Detroit for a while. While I was there I got out and did a series of photographs based on urban decay. I went all over the city to various neighborhoods to take the photographs, however, I don't remember the specific places that I took them at. I remember taking this photograph of the decaying door along a street that was rather wide and was lined with a number of old storefronts, but as to specifically where in Detroit this doorway was I can't say.

The series of urban decay photographs that I took was all done on Kodak T-Max 400 film. The processing was done using Kodak D-76 black and white film developer. I made a number of 11x14 size prints from these images, but I have only gotten a few of the negatives digitized.

Photo taken: December, 1992, at Detroit, Michigan.


  1. Thanks a lot Brian Christian. I've got a few more of these old negatives scanned from this time. I'll get to posting them sometime, hopefully before next August.

  2. You're welcome, thanks for pleasing my eyes with your ruins. :) I'd love to see what others you can scan and post.
    My wife and I are working on our families' repositories (my dad alone had ~15k) so mine are on the back burner. ...even if I do try to get the new ones imported in a timely manner, lol
