Focus Years: 2008 | Country: France
The automobile industry jumpstarted Detroit’s prolific rise and helped turn it into the most industrialized city in the United States. But drastic changes in American demographics and culture have upended the once prosperous city, leaving it in partial ruins. Today, vast urban prairies, populated with a diverse array of wildlife including falcon, deer, and coyote, have replaced what once had been working- and middle-class neighborhoods. Now, an unexpected turn of events has created a "blank canvas" environment where young people and urban farmers are moving back into the ruined neighborhoods of old Detroit. Are these folks a new kind of pioneer? Could this be a way in which American’s urban areas are being "rediscovered"?
