Andrew Moore Bio

About The Artist

Photographer Andrew Moore documents places and spaces of historical significance, even if such sites have fallen into obscurity or have simply become background noise. Cities like Detroit and landscapes such as that of rural Nebraska are therefore representative of Moore’s subject matter, as within his work, they embody neglected locales that once hosted utopian visions of progress, production, and abundance. Moore’s 2009 photograph Model T Headquarters, for instance, chronicles how mossy vegetation claimed the abandoned office of Henry Ford at a dilapidated car manufacturing plant in Detroit. In the picture, Ford’s carpet—now a surface of flora—is eerie and beautiful against the surviving wood-paneled walls and within the soft, warm natural light that streams into the room. 


Moore’s solo exhibition “Detroit Disassembled” toured the United States between 2010 and 2012, with stops at the Akron Art Museum, the Queens Museum of Art, the University Art Gallery at Indiana State University, and the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. His work has also been included in shows at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the St. Louis Art Museum, and the Princeton Art Museum.
