The Detroit Economic Growth Corporation is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to facilitating business development in Detroit. The DEGC's D2D program is focused on fostering relationships between Detroit's supplier and purchasing business community. The preceding portraits of Detroit-area small business owners and purchasing executives at large Detroit-based corporations were commissioned by DEGC for D2D's website. To view the full collection of portraits, click here. For a discussion of the lighting set-up used on a few of these images, head over to Flickr.

Noah Stephens  is a photographer, essayist and founder of  The People of Detroit Photodocumentary - a media project dedicated to dynamic, interesting  people in the storied birthplace of American auto manufacturing.  Since its inception in April 2010,  TPOD has received national and international attention. Portraits from the project have appeared in Bloomberg BusinessWeekFast Company and other national publications. 

In early 2011, a creative director saw the project on flickr.com and hired Noah to shoot an ad campaign for McDonald's Corporation in Shanghai, China. 

The People of Detroit Photodocumentary is funded in part by a grant from CEOS for Cities and the John S. And James L. Knight Foundation.
