Doing something for 60 years is already a feat in itself, but 95 year-old photographer Bill Rauhauser was recently recognized and awarded for his impeccable work in shooting iconic images of the city of Detroit. Rauhauser’s engaging black & white photos have already graced the walls of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. They are currently on display at the Carl Hammer Gallery in Chicago. Asked about his work, he humbly replies that “Over the years, I’ve just walked around Detroit keeping an eye open waiting for something to happen, something significant. And I loved every minute of it.”

We have below some photos of Detroit taken by Rauhauser, which are nothing short of brilliant. You can view the whole set at My Modern Metropolis
