This is a photograph I took while exploring the former Packard Automotive Plant in Detroit, Michigan. Exploring the plant was a unique experience full of thrilling, beautiful, and heartbreaking discoveries, and it will stick with me forever.
The plant itself closed in 1958, however a variety of other businesses used the large complex until the late 1990s. After it was abandoned, the plant began to draw numerous urban explorers, graffiti artists, auto scrappers, and paintballers. Scavengers have also extensively stripped the buildings of wiring and other building materials. I saw this on a large scale during my visit to the plant, and took care to avoid a decently large crew of people equipped with power tools who were taking something from a section of one of the buildings (copper, perhaps).
