About the Book
DETROIT: THE DREAM IS NOW (Abrams; April 11, 2017; U.S. $40.00; Hardcover), by internationally recognized photographer Michel Arnaud, is the first visual book to focus on Detroit’s rebuilding and resurgence. In recent years, much of the focus on Detroit has been on ruin porn—images of shuttered, empty buildings, the emblems of Detroit’s financial and physical decline. In contrast, Arnaud aims his lens at the emergent creative enterprises and new developments taking hold in the still-vibrant city.

Each section depicts the flourishing art, food, and design scenes alongside the city’s historic architecture and neighborhoods—all accompanied by interviews and portraits of resident entrepreneurs, artists, and makers. Essays by local insiders Matthew Clayson, Jennifer A. Conlin, Sarah F. Cox, and Lynn Crawford offer perspectives on the dynamic changes taking place.

Arnaud visited Detroit nonstop for three years to document this compelling story of an American city in flux and the astonishing resilience of its citizens. A powerful antidote to misconceptions about the burgeoning metropolis, Detroit: The Dream Is Now documents the city’s rebuilding and resurgence by exploring its rich industrial past while giving voice to the dynamic communities that will make up its future.
