Andrew Moore is a contemporary photographer who has traveled the world, capturing images of places who have seen better days. Places such as Russia, Cuba, and even Detroit where political turmoil and depressed economies have left even the most beautiful architecture in varying states of disrepair and neglect. His images are the poetic meshing of the grandeur of the original structure with the dilapidated remains.
In his own words: “My photographic interests have always lain at the busy intersections of history, particularly those locations where multiple tangents of time overlap and tangle. In other places I have photographed … these meanderings of time create a densely layered, historical narrative”
The result is images that are hauntingly chilling, and at the same time, incredibly beautiful.
I think the art would be an amazing stark contrast to a bright and cheery room, or equally well suited for a minimalist white one. Lets just say I would LOVE one of my own and since Moore is a relatively new artist, I think the work would only appreciate in value.
However, if, for whatever reason, you can’t seem to come up with the $6000-$24,000, you can also check out his coffee table book- Making History.
