I never thought that abandoned houses could look beautiful.  In his project 100 Abandoned Houses, Kevin Bauman captures a quiet, melancholic spirit that comes with desolate, defunct structures sitting on an abandoned street.

His pictures are from Detroit, MI. This city was decimated by the housing melt-down, more than any other place in the US. However, there are hundreds of ugly Columbus houses that litter city streets and destroy neighborhoods.

The pictures are for your enjoyment!

As you click through these photos, think about how you would resolve the problem of abandonment and decay in the inner city.
