St Agnes of Detroit: The cornerstone of the church was laid in September 1921 as construction of the 1,500 seat sanctuary was completed in 1924. In 1967 some of the worst outbursts of civil unrest the country would ever see occurred and most homes and buildings in the neighborhood were burned to the ground. The church never regained its families and merged in 1986 with only about 150 members finally closing its doors in 2006. Since then metal thieves and scrappers have cleaned her almost completely out.

  •   hellarob I really like the composition of this picture. The leading lines are superb, and the eye naturally loves a triangle shape. Placing your subject more or less centered adds a bit of tension which I think works very nicely. The complimentary colors work nicely and let the focus be on the composition. 5d

minnerphotography I don't care for this as an artistic photo but wanted to post to show what happened just a few weeks before we got there!
Eastown Theater, Detroit, 1931-1990. Opened as an upscale movie theater seating 2,500. In the 80's it was converted into an adult movie facility then in the 90's as a rave venue. It came to an end as a church and then half the building burning down in 2010. This was one of the places I was most excited about visiting but unfortunately a few weeks before we arrived a ton of the roof had collapsed.

minnerphotography I rarely do black and white but there was something that changed with this photo when I converted the file. It gave a simplicity to the location that for me captures the complexity of faith. It's not just black and white but there are many shades of grey. None of us get it right and most of us miss the mark often. I'm glad sees through my clutter.
Churches of Detroit: This one was built in 1910 and as many the decline of the population brought an end to the need of such a large building. So many of these made my heart ache knowing this was how so many churches across the country have become. So many have not felt a need to adapt and change with the needs of society. I don't mean the faith has to change but the way it is delivered and so many of the archaic ways it is presented. The Church isn't a building but instead it is the full body of believers.

minnerphotography Detroit church series: ice was frozen on the pulpit from a hole in the ceiling opened the the Book of Job- Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.” The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord. (Job 1:8-12 NIV) 2w

minnerphotography When you are locked in a cage there is always one person that still holds the key. Who is it holding yours?
Detroit Jail: Like most police stations built in the 1950's, the 16th had a lobby, offices, garage, firing range in the basement, a locker room, and jail cells. Prisoners were brought in through the garage and into the booking area, where they were searched and fingerprinted. There were 18 cells in two different blocks where prisoners were kept temporarily.
Through the late 1970's and 80's, the Detroit Police Department laid off hundreds of officers and closed several stations. The department continued to shrink until in 2005, the twelve remaining precinct stations throughout the city were consolidated into six district stations.
