Detroit – the City of Champions and the Motown

For slightly over than 300 years of its history, Detroit has evolved from a small settlement, known as Fort Ponchartrain du Détroit, into the City of Champions and to the Motown with its unique atmosphere, distinct local coloring, and features, easily recognizable throughout the world. Center of the American automobile industry and home of legendary Red Wings – Detroit has much to offer to its inhabitants as well as to all the guests of the city. We have devoted today’s photographic gallery, hosted at Cruzine magazine, to the city of Detroit, trying to describe this American city with the help of a mosaic of multiple separate images, captured by skillful and talented photographers.

Architecture and sculptures, street art and graffiti, tunnels, and city streets in different seasons and weather conditions – you’ll see many pictures of Detroit below. Of course, we could not pass by those things, which made Detroit a name – sport teams, magnificent stadium, and automobiles… Some of these photos are in black and white just to underline the quintessence of the composition; others demonstrate the life of Detroit in all the variety of colors. Finally, many of the photographs, presented below, concentrate on people, living in Detroit – and that is really the biggest wealth of the City.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
