Miles To Empty

Artist Shannon Goff could probably not resist. She was born into the world of cars and engines. Curse or blessing? Most recently she created her grandfather’s 1979 Lincoln Continental in cardboard. »Miles To Empty« explores the car as a metaphor for the complexities of American life in general, and for her own experiences as a native of the city of Detroit specifically«, she let us know.

100 abandoned houses

A photography series of 100 abandoned houses in Detroit, Michigan.

100 seemed like a lot, although the number of abandoned houses in Detroit is more like 12,000. Encompassing an area of over 138 square miles, Detroit has enough room to hold the land mass of San Francisco, Boston, and Manhattan Island, yet the population has fallen from close to 2 million citizens, to most likely less than 800,000. With such a dramatic decline, the abandoned house problem is not likely to go away any time soon.
