The Death and Rebirth of the Midwest Industrial City
The photographs in this collection were begun in November, 2009. The story takes place in Cleveland. It took place in many Midwest industrial cities: Youngstown, Toledo, Detroit, Ft Wayne, East Chicago, Gary, and Milwaukee. The story isn’t limited to the Midwest. It took place in Bethlehem, Allentown, Johnstown, Pittsburgh and Wheeling. But this story takes place in Cleveland. The photography shows Cleveland as it is, and not as it was. Included are images of what remains of the once great city and increasing signs of the city's rebirth and hope for the future. Please remember that the galleries are evolving works in process.
