‘The Ruins of Detroit’ by Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre Photography are haunting and depressing. The collection of photos show the Motor City ruins and what remains of the once bustling city. What used to be the 4th most important city in the US now lies in disrepair -- the city’s only bright spot is its hockey team.

Since the 1950s Detroit has lost half its population. The photographers view the decaying skyscrapers and buildings that make up the Motor City ruins as modern equivalents to what remains of the long gone civilizations of Egypt, Rome and Greece.
