After

Anthony Macri


After is a collection of images of urban architecture from Detroit, Michigan between 2001-2005. The 25 film images reflect a perspective of a once vibrant and influential city that has been on a continual economic and political decline over the last 40 years. With the departure of over 100,000 automotive manufacturing jobs, the net loss of population resulted in over 1.2 million people. Left in its wake is a vast amount of urban decay ranging from abandoned automotive plants and communities to office towers in the downtown core.
