I've already posted a bit about Detroit's crumbling splendour via the Detroit Wonderland section of the Dark Passage site - well worth a look.
The Observer has just printed some of Yves Marchand and Romaine Meffres' similar shots. They're all incredible - if you saw them in a film you'd think they were being heavy handed with the apocalyptic decay. Totally mesmerising.
