Alleys & Ruins is a photographic exploration of urban decay in America. The project, begun in 1991 by artist Xavier Nuez, is now in its 21st year and has lead to journeys into dangerous neighborhoods, at times resulting in trouble. The photographs are taken at night, using a 50 year old Hasselblad film camera. During the 10 to 30 minute exposures, Nuez walks around with various (colored) lights and shines them on different parts of the scene, adding color and texture to the typically drab locations.
