Photographer Profile ~ Andrew Moore

Amercian photographer Andrew Moore is best known for his richly coloured images of architectural and urban scenes. He has had eight solo shows in New York as well as numerous exhibitions in the U.S. and internationally. Moore distils the spirit of this message in his haunting large-scale images of decay and renewal. From Cuba to Russia to Detroit, Moore seeks out disused, wrecked buildings and captures the moment that nature stakes her claim on their ravaged grandeur. Over the past 30 years, Moore has travelled for months at a time to track down these secret places that are often the sad consequences modernisation or political turmoil.
