Detroit Disassembled by Andrew Moore (Damiani/Akron Art Museum)
Photographer Andrew Moore finds beauty in what many consider Detroit's decay. With the decline of the auto industry, sections of Detroit resemble a war zone. Moore's photographs capture the earth's/nature's recapturing of spaces that were once populated with spectacular architecture and entwined in the heartbeat of a vibrant city. Former Detroiter and Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Philip Levine, provides an introductory essay championing the unshakable spirit that makes Detroit special.
