Bill Rauhauser photographs Old Detroit in black and white

Photographer Bill Rauhauser has spent decades photographing Detroit – here is a black and white gallery of his street photos.

Most of my photographs were made in the ’40s, ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. All the photos I took showed Detroit as a really viable city

His views on the rise of digital photography and its impact on street photography are interesting too:

It’s very difficult to become invisible now. My way of working was to dress in a way that would not draw attention so I could fit in with the crowd. I’d walk up to somebody crossing the street and I could get a photo without being noticed. Not anymore
