American Beauty: The Opulent Pre-Depression Architecture of Detroit
American Beauty presents the work of Canadian photographer Philip Jarmain. Since 2010, Jarmain has been documenting the increasingly rapid destruction of Detroit’s early twentieth-century buildings. His emphasis in this work is on the architecture itself of these vanishing edifices: The form and the detail. Meridian Gallery is pleased to present these photographs, curated by Sheeka Arbuthnot, as an opportunity to consider the historical and current state of Detroit as an American city.
