Barb Morrissey, Brighton, MI

Belle Isle Zoo is a short film showing the decay and ruin of the old Belle Isle Zoo on Belle Isle in Detroit, MI filmed in the fall of 2011 with a Canon T2i DSLR. Originally the main Detroit Zoo, it became a petting zoo in 1956 and was closed and left to decay by Kwame Kilpatrick in 2001. This is the mixed state of decay and arrested decay that it remains in to this day
