Dave Jordano – Detroit Unbroken Down


Copyright 2015 Dave Jordano

Photographer: Dave Jordano (born Detroit, MI, USA resides Chicago IL, USA)

Published & copyright: 2015

Publisher: powerHouse Books

Essays: Nancy Watson Barr, Dawoud Bey, Sharon Zukin

Text: English

Hardcover book with dust jacket, sewn binding, four-color lithography, printed in China

Photobook designer: Sam Silvio, Edited by Meg Handler

Notes: The residents of a region inside Detroit (Michigan) that is known for being on the downside edge of life are the subject of Jordano’s photobook. He creates an intimate narrative about hope and endurance to an otherwise misunderstood and misrepresented city.
