Timothy Hursley, ‘Detroit’, 1978, Garvey | Simon

Timothy Hursley captured this dramatic view facing south toward Detroit's Renaissance Center on a cold winter morning in 1978. Commuters alight from the 8:30 a.m. train that arrived moments ago from the northern suburbs, as steam released by the train's breaks condenses in the chilly air. Henry Ford II created Renaissance Center as a project to renew downtown Detroit. The interconnected skyscrapers were only a year old when the photograph was taken. Today the complex is the international headquarters for General Motors.
