Detroit Is by J. Gordon Rodwan
J. Gordon Rodwan's photographs show sides of the city that many people often miss rather than reproducing images already widely seen. They don't ignore the dilapidated parts of the city, but they don't fetishize those elements either. Instead, Rodwan juxtaposes them with images capturing efforts to cultivate and sustain creativity and vibrancy in a place where too many expect to see only relics or despair. "Detroit Is" offers a highly individual look at what it's like to live in Detroit.
