“Once a thriving industrial hub, Camden, New Jersey, now ranks among the poorest, most dilapidated, and most dangerous cities in America.

Photographer Jose Moreno spends quite a bit of time there covering mostly bad news for the Cherry Hill Courier Post. But what he notices— beyond the prostitutes and drug dealers—is the ghost of Camden’s mid-20th century glory days, the beauty of its rundown architecture, and occasional signs of hope and renewal. He captures all of that in an offbeat slideshow called “Camden: An Architectural View.”
