Halloween Arsons in Detroit

Detroit fire fighters fight a two-story vacant dwelling fire fully engulfed in flames at 5902 Ivanhoe on Detroit’s near-west side Halloween Night just after 10 p.m. Another large vacant-dwelling fire was started about an hour prior a couple blocks from Ivanhoe and Ironwood was also ruled suspicious.

Diptych Friday: unconventional youth

Mo holds his favorite book “Go Ask Alice”, a book about youth and addiction. “I try to read an hour a day cause it gets you out of your head,” said Mo. He was once a drug addict himself, the oldest and black sheep of his family, Mo got into drugs at a young age and was kicked out of his home at 15. He is now living in a tent community on the outskirts of Ann Arbor, MI.

“Wind: Mid-Michigan’s New Energy” was a group-thesis multimedia project that focused on the emerging Wind Turbine development in Gratiot County.

Here are a couple films stills and images from that evening of feature hunting:
