I came across the work of photographer Camilo Jose Vergara through his pictures of the crumbling metropolis of Detroit (which reminds me that I really must get round to reviewing Mark Binelli's book on the subject), but he's trained his lens on numerous cities across the US. Vergara's fascination with the processes of urban change is evident in his photos taken of the same buildings/street from the same perspectives over the course of four decades. While the photos do generally depict decline, in one or two cases they also show positive urban renewal.
