Andrew Moore

 

We are thrilled to announce that one of America’s great photographers has created a very special signed, numbered, limited edition just for us, and most importantly, has included a magnificent signed, numbered print to enhance your favorite wall.

Andrew Lambdin Moore, whose work has been exhibited at important museums around the country, has been awarded a Guggenheim, praised in almost every major appropriate publication including  The New Yorker, Fortune, National Geographic, and Art in America, and even won a prize at Sundance for one of his films. The acclaimed artist is helping our state celebrate its bicentennial with a special edition of 200 signed and numbered copies of Blue Alabama, unforgettable images his unerring eye translated to the page after traveling its length and breadth for four years. Each book comes with a gorgeous signed and numbered print of the iconic Edmund Pettus bridge, one of the most famous such structures on the planet. Moore’s prints hang in discriminating homes around the globe, and usually sell for many times the publisher’s $250 for this combo treasure.

Moore’s views employ the formal vocabularies of architectural and landscape photography and the narrative approaches of journalism to document remnants of societies in transition. Previous publications and exhibits are the results of his travels to Cuba, Detroit and the American High Plains. He is best known for large format color photographs.

For those collectors yet to meet this master, his father was an architect and his mother an editor with a fine art publisher. They supported and encouraged his early interest in photography by building him his own attic darkroom and introducing him to the works of Peter Beard, as well as arranging for young Moore to receive two signed prints from his hero.

Later, as a summa cum laude Princeton grad, he studied and worked with Peter Bunnell, Emmet Gowin, Frederick Sommer, Jim Dow and Joel Meyerowitz. His ancestral bloodlines are connected to George Cochran Lambdin, American Victorian artist and Alfred A. Hart, official photographer for the western half of the first transcontinental railroad.

Since 2004, Moore has taught at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and lectured at Princeton University from 2001 to 2010.

ANDREW MOORE: CUBA was created over a span of 14 years and reveal an elegant but crumbling metropolis of muted pastel interiors, courtyards and scenes of daily life. The images are painterly and poetic and show the country’s 500 year old history and culture in transition. Moore does not attempt to gloss over questionable conditions, nor contort reality.

ANDREW MOORE: DETROIT DISASSEMBLED conveys the aesthetic of a postindustrial decline which allows nature to blur the lines between wilderness and city. The entire photography process for creating this work involved many years. These images confirm the carnivorousness of our earth, as it steeps into and overruns the buildings of a city that once epitomized humankind’s supposed supremacy.

While Moore locates both dignity and tragedy in the city’s decline, windowless grand hotels, vast barren factory floors, offices carpeted in velvety moss raises the uneasy question of the future if extreme degradation continues unchecked.

ANDREW MOORE: DIRT MERIDIAN contains images of people and landscape of the great American desert, which roughly includes the area west of the 100th meridian to the Rocky Mountains, from Texas north to Canada. Moore spent nine years in this area, one of the most sparsely populated regions in the country, where daily reality is often defined by drought and hardship. 

To make many of the photographs, Moore collaborated with Doug Dean, the pilot of a single-engine aircraft, to create bird’s-eye perspectives revealing the vastness of the land. Rather than flying high above the plains, Moore chose perspectives that have the sense of being within the landscape rather than above it. From above, the land is like one endless, unpunctuated idea — sand, tumbleweed, turkey, bunch stem, buffalo, meadow, cow, rick of hay, creek, sunflower, sand — and only rarely did a house or a windmill or a barn suddenly appear to suspend the sense of limitlessness. On the ground, Moore photographed the people who inhabit this unforgiving landscape and the evidence of their efforts, from active homesteads to abandoned schoolhouses.
