United Photo Industries is proud to present a solo exhibition of recent work by photographer Dave Jordano on his home-town of Detroit. Artist Reception will take place on Thursday February 6 from 6-9pm. Show will be open until March 21, 2014.  A kind, personal look at a much-maligned city, Jordano's visual exploration of Detroit does not waste time rehashing worn-out visual tropes of devastation and urban poverty, turning his gaze instead to the people surviving, thriving, making a decent life for themselves against the odds.

Presenting us with a message of hope from a great city brought low, Jordano's exhibition Detroit: Unbroken Down is a beautiful, visual celebration of the power of human spirit and perseverance.
