Photojournalist Alex Atwell and Jeff Morrison, a photographer and historian who takes photos of the guards lurking over the city, explore buildings that are unique to Detroit. His interest grew as he grew up in the city and always took the time to look at the fascinating sculptures. He considered these gargoyles and sculptures as guardians in his book “The Guardians of Detroit”. The gargoyles that stand on top of numerous historic Detroit buildings are artistic masterpieces. The intricate details can be easily captured through a telephoto lens.
