These are some photos I took recently in Ironwood, Michigan, located in the Upper Peninsula right on the Wisconsin border. This town’s heyday is obviouslyÂ long past, but as I walked and drove the streets of Ironwood, I felt that this was a place living right on the cusp–as if it’s either going to collapse under its own weight at any moment or somehow find itselfÂ resuscitatedÂ by an outside force now looming on the horizon.
And speaking of things past their heyday, these photos were all shot with a 1970s Olympus 35-RC rangefinder on Kodak Ektar 100. (And speaking of 100, it was almost 100 degrees that day!)
