Photographer Andrew Moore’s Detroit series depicts the abandoned and destructed architecture, interiors and landscapes of Detroit, Michigan. These large-scale, sublime photographs depict a sort-of fallen American empire; an elegiac vision of America’s ruins. More universally, the photographs are meditations on the impact of time, nature, and history. Moore spent time between 2008 and 2009 in Detroit making the images for this series and teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York. The series is currently on view at the Akron Art Museum in Akron, Ohio.
