Detroit Disassembled, Hardback Book

Detroit Disassembled Hardback


No longer the Motor City of boom-time industry, the city of Detroit has fallen into an incredible state of dilapidation since the postwar decline of the American auto industry.

Today, whole sections of the city resemble a war zone, its once-spectacular architectural grandeur reduced to vacant ruins.

In Detroit Disassembled, photographer Andrew Moore records a territory in which the ordinary flow of time--or the forward march of the assembly line--appears to have been thrown spectacularly into reverse.

For Moore, who throughout his career has been drawn to all that contradicts or seems to threaten America's postwar self-image (his previous projects include portraits of Cuba and Soviet Russia), Detroit's decline affirms the carnivorousness of our earth, as it seeps into and overruns the buildings of a city that once epitomized humankind's supposed supremacy.

This limited edition of Detroit Disassembled comes with a signed archival print photograph by Moore (15 x 12 inches) and is housed in a linen cloth box.
