Book Nook: A Detroit Nocturne

Photographs by Dave Jordano | Text by Karen Irvine | powerHouse Books • $39.95
“A Detroit Nocturne” captures the city by night, without people, through a series of eerie portraits of buildings and street scenes. The city’s wound down vacancy and stillness, lit at night, reflects an almost post-apocalyptic tension-yet-calm. One is forced to discern human presence through small clues: a lone light in a window, a Jesus deity overlooking a shrine. Welcome to Detroit.
