Post-Apocalyptic Silverdome

I was fortunate to be picked up by Al Jazeera America to make images of the now ruined Pontiac Silverdome. After Channel 4 in Detroit was given the exclusive, I was one of the first members of the media allowed in along with the reporter that I was working with. 

This isn't like the Packard Plant. This isn't like Michigan Central Station. This isn't just some giant, looming in the distance. We have memories here. Recent memories. Many of the people in Metro Detroit have been to the Silverdome time and time again for concerts, games, motocross... I used to go see monster trucks here. I saw Metallica on Y2K here. Mind-blowing.
