Art In America

Andrew Moore

at Yancey Richardson,
525 W. 22nd St.

 

New York photographer Andrew Moore has a way of making even his most abject subjects appear majestic. Known for his powerful images of urban decay in Cuba, Russia and Detroit, Moore spent the past several years in the Midwest photographing the large-format works in the series "Dirt Meridian." The show's title refers to the longitudinal line that runs from the Dakotas through Texas, defining America's Western frontier. The photos on view feature desolate landscapes and isolated and abandoned homestead communities that once dominated the plains. Moore imbues each of these haunting images with a palpable sense of tumultuous sociological and geological transformation.
