Abandoned House Photography by Kevin Bauman
Kevin Bauman is a proficient photographer from Denver, Colorado. He is the brains behind the abandoned houses project. Once a city of almost 2 million citizens, Detroit has since lost over half its population over the last 60 years. The current count is less than 800,000. Many homes are filled with emptiness, as well as sadness.
The abandoned houses project began innocently enough roughly ten years ago. Kevin began photographing abandonment in Detroit in the mid 90’s as a creative outlet, and as a way of satisfying his curiosity with the state of his home town. How could an area that was obviously once a wealthy enclave in the city become an example of the downfall of American cities?
