10 Desolate Pictures of Detroit by Bethany Helzer

Photographer Bethany Helzer lives in Detroit, Michigan, a city that offers interesting sites for capturing urban decay in action. Although Detroit isn’t entirely a ‘ghost city’, certain sections look like scenes from a post-apocalyptic story. The atmosphere is both haunting and beautiful, a perfect place for photography.
