Andrew Moore returned to Detroit seven times over the past two years in order to capture these stunning images. He visited several abandoned spaces including a burned out school where the clocks have melted on the wall. Also among these amazing relics are images of the seldom seen Ford Factory on the River Rouge.

Some viewers may be possessed by fits of melancholic nostalgia but Moore’s interest is in the beauty that accumulates when material accomplishments are returned to the natural world. He states, “Detroit is more than a story of physical decline, decay and transformation; it is a city where the distortion of time is inventing new symbols for the America of the future.”

    Nice imagery. I love the colors and distressed surfaces. Places like these are a process of their own and this photography shows that process off nicely. Fantastic light quality, thanks, great work Andrew Moore.
