With its historic buildings and landmarks, tree-lined neighborhoods, and automotive legacy, the city of Detroit offers a treasure trove of subjects for the photographer and artist. Renowned photographer Cynthia Davis captures the soul of the Motor City in these remarkable hand-altered Polaroid photographs. From the graceful lines of the Ambassador Bridge to the elegant interiors of the Fisher Building, from the hubbub of Eastern Market to the jazz festival to the quiet streets of Indian Village and more, with her images, Davis transforms Detroit into an evocative, even magical place. She creates these unique pictures by manipulating the gel-like chemicals in Polaroid photographs while they're still developing. This imbues her work with a dreamlike quality, somewhere between photorealism and impressionist painting. This book is a must-have for Detroit fans everywhere.
