Detour in Detroit
Regular price $25.00
Detour in Detroit by Francesca Berardi tells the story of one of the 21st century's most fascinating cities through a series of encounters with a variety of people who are building its present and imagining its future. The book opens with a map of Detroit and a legend which is also the table of contents: each chapter is linked to a specific place in the city. The central part of the book is composed of 17 chapters, each one dedicated to a different aspect of the city and to different people. The b/w photographs that accompany the text, taken by the artist Antonio Rovaldi, appear in short sequences so that they develop their own narrative. Four chapters also feature photos taken by their protagonists. The location of the places mentioned in the text is indicated in the margin so that the reader can track the stories and map out his/her own personal itinerary. Published by Humboldt Press.
