Detroit is not desolate. There are people here. Creative, energetic, intelligent people. It’s ok to say hello. And its even safe to ride your bike around. The DetroitByBike concept started as a way to document the urban garden culture of Detroit. I started riding my bike around, taking pictures and photographing the gardens. As I did this I discovered many other interesting things about Detroit. The project has developed into a photo journal of the city. If you want to see ruins and abandoned buildings you are in the wrong place. My goal is to show the living, breathing, positive side of Detroit.
