Andrew Moore: Dirt Meridian

Preface by Kent Haruf. Text by Toby Jurovics, Inara Verzemnieks.

"Location Flare," McKenzie County, North Dakota, 2014, is reproduced from <i>Andrew Moore: Dirt Meridian</i>.

The quintessential American High Plains landscape in majestic color photographs

In Dirt Meridian, Andrew Moore takes to the air to document the High Plains of North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska in a series of stunning, large-format photographs. The "meridian" of the title refers to the 100th meridian, the longitude that neatly bisects the US and has long been considered the dividing line between the East and West. Much of the meridian traverses America's so-called flyover country, those sparsely populated landscapes between the urban centers on either coast. Other parts of the meridian cross contentious zones such as the heavily fracked Bakken formation in North Dakota.
Dirt Meridian interweaves two stories: the myths and history of the vast, severe American High Plains alongside portraits of the people who live there today. Along the way, Moore worked with ranchers, farmers, crop dusters, game wardens, writers and historians to capture the mythology and reality of the High Plains. Many photographs in this book were taken using a specially modified camera in a low-flying plane; the resulting pictures, with their literal bird's-eye view, offer a unique perspective on this quintessential, seemingly boundless American landscape.
American photographer Andrew Moore (born 1957) is widely acclaimed for his photographic series, usually taken over many years, recording the effects of time on the natural and built landscape.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Photograph Magazine

Lyle Rexer

I find so many of the photographs to be moving, dignified, and deeply sympathetic, I am not sure you can ask more of a photographer.

Andrew Moore: Dirt Meridian: Simon's Schoolhouse Museum

Reproduced from Damiani's absorbing new collection of Andrew Moore's large-format photographs of the "Dirt Meridian" of the United States, "Simon's Schoolhouse Museum" in Pennington County, South Dakota (2014) is an invitation-only museum which has had 1000 visitors since fifth-generation farmer, rancher, poet and historian Edgar Simon opened it in 1972. "Unlike other museums, which have only one of any particular item on display at a time, Simon tries to collect and present every possible variation of the objects that fascinate him." continue to blog

Andrew Moore: Dirt Meridian: J.D. Jerde and the Old Post Office

"J.D. Jerde and the Old Post Office, Harding County, South Dakota" (2014) is reproduced from Andrew Moore's stunning new collection of photographs of the High Plains of North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska—aka, the 100th meridian, which divides the United States between east and west. Moore writes, "Before it was the chicken coop for the Great Plains Buffalo Ranch, this old house served as a post office in a town to the west. In previous times, it was common for these to be located in someone's home. Often it was just a box or a crate in the corner of a small room, but nonetheless, for the homesteaders it was a prominent status symbol to be designated as such." continue to blog

Andrew Moore: Dirt Meridian, Homesteader's Tree

"I can hardly say how much these photographs of the country along the 100th parallel mean to me," acclaimed novelist Kent Haruf writes in his preface to Dirt Meridian, Andrew Moore's newest book of photographs. "A little west of here is where I grew up and where I taught in a rural school for most of a decade. This is the country I love the most. The look of this country is what I would want to see every day, though I live in the mountains now. I think of the high plains, the great plains, the short grass prairie, as the way country should look: this stark clear flat land, so open and wide, with its sandhills, and overhead the tremendous clouds, and the wind blowing, and nothing to stop it from Canada to Texas except barbed wire fence." Featured image is "Homesteaders' Tree, Cherry County, Nebraska," 2011. continue to blog
