Detroit, Michigan-based photographer Nick Hagen covered Ford’s attempt to revitalize itself–as well as the city of Detroit–for the New York Times. Ford is currently working on a big renovation project: the Michigan Central Station, unused since the last train departed from the building in 1988. Nick heard of this unique opportunity while in New York and he flew back early to be part of a historic moment for The Motor City.
To my knowledge, it was the first time a photographer working with a media organization was legally allowed to shoot in the station to photograph since it closed in 1988.
