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.

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.
