Detroit resident chronicles his city's desolation
Friday - 4/5/2013, 1:36pm EDT
DETROIT (AP) -- Tony Majka has been chronicling Detroit's blight epidemic in a unique and popular way.
Using the name "Tony Detroit," he takes smartphone photos of the city's many abandoned structures and posts them to Instagram.
While most users on the photo-sharing site have dozens or maybe hundreds of followers, Tony Detroit's simple shots of Detroit's desolation have earned him over 300,000.
He's been posting two to three photos a day, but Majka says he's ready to slow down, putting up only one or two a week.
Majka says he's "not making fun of" his hometown but is bringing "awareness to the beautiful architecture" of the decaying metropolis.
A longtime auto industry employee, Majka says taking photos of Detroit's underbelly is "more entertaining" than his day job.
