A limited edition book published to coincide with the exhibition of Moore's work held at the Gallery Alex Daniels in 2010. The book features over 50 of Moore's hauntingly beautiful photographs taken over a thirty year period. Moore's trademark use of intense colour and uncompromising detail whilst documenting abandoned and derelict sites is generously displayed within the book. The locations include New York, Abu Dhabi, Sarajevo, Hanoi, Russia, Ukraine, Havana and Detroit.
'"We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes," was the motto adopted by the city of Detroit, after it was ravaged by the great fire of 1805. American photographer Andrew 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.'
