Belle Isle Revealed from Brian Kaufman.

Belle Isle is Detroit’s largest city park – nearly 1000 acres of island nestled in the Detroit River. Roughly 1 million visitors a year use the park, but this is the story of Belle Isle’s natural side. Filmed over the course of a year using Canon’s 5D Mark II, Brian Kaufman captured the island as few have ever seen it. The project was produced for the Detroit Free Press, where Kaufman is a staff videographer.
