November 1, 2016
Subject Fields: 
Urban History / Studies, Architecture and Architectural History, Environmental History / Studies, Contemporary History, Art, Art History & Visual Studies

Contemporary ruins such as those found in Detroit and Chernobyl attract thousands of ‘ruin tourists’ or ‘ruin photographers’, many of whom attempt to engage on a meaningful level with the existential threat that these sights arouse.
