Andrew Moore's 'Detroit Disassembled' (Damiani) concentrates primarly on the factories that formerly drove the economy, now falling apart or gone back to nature, like the Ford office whose floor has grown over with moss. (Editors The Wall Street Journal)
Although there is plenty of rubble in “Detroit Disassembled,” Mr. Moore’s work usually escapes the narrow constraints of the genre. His large-scale prints―some up to 5 feet by 6 feet ― are sumptuous and painterly, rich in texture and color: the emerald carpet of moss growing on the floor of Henry Ford’s office at the Model T plant, the pumpkin-orange walls of a vandalized classroom at Cass Technical High School, the crimson panels of a former F.B.I. shooting range. Photos like those of the enormous rolling hall at Ford’s River Rouge plant and a sunset over the Bob-Lo Island boat dock were inspired, Mr. Moore said, by 19th-century American landscape painters like Frederic Church and Martin Johnson Heade.
