Feral Houses

I enjoy listening to Matt Frei's Americana shows on the BBC's iPlayer and this week he has a great interview with photographer and blogger James Griffioen, who has documented the decay of Detroit. His big point is that in amongst all this decay is beauty and hope. Nature is taking over and people are adapting by running renegade urban farming operations, a sort of bizarre future sustainablity model for the USA coming out of the home of the motor car.
