Andrew Moore is known for his ability to capture the layered truth of place. Time and history echo in his frames. While his work on Cuba and Russia are most well remembered, more current bodies of work have focused closer to home; his last series was on Detroit, and this new body of work focuses on the longitudinal line that divides the East and West. The 100th meridian west runs through North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, and is historically regarded as the geographic beginning of the American West. This land has a sorted past, and an equally challenging future. As always, there is something mythic to Moore's frames, and though the territory's remains are skeletal there is still an inherent heroism to them. The barren lands and abandoned homesteads become central figures to the series, which was begun in 2005 and continued. By 2011 Moore took to the air in a crop duster and eventually mounted a camera to its strut. The resulting series combines large format ground images with ariel digital ones. These vestiges and landscapes open narratives onto the region's struggle with climate change, energy exploration, resource management, and food production.
