"Solitary Row Houses Defy the Process of Urban Decay"

From Wired:

“Throughout my work there is a sense of isolation, but there is also a strong notion of defiance,” he says. “Over the last 40 years, due to demographic changes, drugs, violence, a lot of the neighborhoods where I photographed fell into disrepair and entire blocks would be abandoned or demolished. But every now and then you see one of these houses still standing even though everything else is gone.”

Those left standing usually are there because the tenants refused to leave. By the time Marcin pointed his camera at these houses, many were still occupied. Others were empty but upright nonetheless.

“You had this small percentage of people who are like, ‘To hell with it, I’m not going anywhere,’” he says.
