I like the photography of Chris Maluszynski and I feel priviliged to be able to show some of his work on 591. Knowing that he recently was in Detroit, I was eager to see his pictures from the city - depicting the human perspective of the recession affecting Detroit, Motown, the heart of auto industry in USA.
