Photographer Bruce Giffin has a story to tell.

The Detroit photographer has been working in the city for more than three decades. He’s seen a lot and he’s not afraid to talk about it or photograph it.

Giffin won a Kresge Visual Arts Fellowship in 2011 for his powerful “The Face of Detroit” project, focused on capturing glimpses of life from Detroit’s homeless and street communities.
