Andrew Moore at Yancey Richardson

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, December 22, 2009
Updated: Monday, January 13, 2014

After his work with Cuba's crumbling architecture, Moore's large-scale photographs of Detroit in ruins are a lot less romantic but just as fascinating.

The pictures are in color, but the burned-out, dilapidated state of many of these sites renders them virtually black, white, and dingy gray. In one abandoned dry dock, someone has set up shelter under plastic sheeting that falls from an upper floor like a waterfall. The shattered, hulking interiors of the Rouge, the legendary Ford factory, and two ornate movie theatres are sad reminders of grander or at least more optimistic times.

Read the complete review in The New Yorker.
