Side Gallery has always been concerned with the exploration of cities and the forces that shape and shake them. At the heart of America's Rustbelt story, the experience of deindustrialisation, population loss and infrastructure collapse in Detroit has been extreme. It has inspired almost an industry of 'ruin porn' photography. Dave Jordano's long term documentation of the city focuses instead on the resilience and creativity of people who have been left to their own devices.
