Round Midnight – Photography by Ralph Jones

Ralph Jones has been experimenting with the photographic process since the age of 10. In 2017, after concluding a 30-year career in the auto industry, he renewed his passion for photography. While traveling abroad he discovered the perception of Detroit, his hometown, was quite different than his personal experiences. For the last few years, he has been documenting Detroit in an attempt to inspire appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of Detroit, her buildings, and her people. As a result of this documentation he has set about developing a second career as a photographer, editor, publisher, exhibiting artist, and educator.
