Description

Andrew Moore’s “Campoamor, Vista Oeste, Havana, Cuba” beautifully encapsulates the artist’s interest in producing images of urban architectural sites—many of them abandoned—rife with rich color and varied texture. This striking shot captures the interior of the disused, once-grandiose Teatro Campoamor in Havana, Cuba, one of Moore’s favored locales.

About Andrew Moore

With an eye for both landscapes and society, Andrew Moore (American, b. 1957) is known for large-format photos of transitional places like Cuba and Detroit. His 2010 book Detroit Disassembled shows the city as a mixture of urban life and agrarian setting, just as his photos of the American desert, Dirt Meridian (2014), document life in an outsized natural landscape. The Connecticut-born Moore graduated from Princeton in 1979, soon after which he embarked on a project to capture New York City’s changing urban landscape; in 1995, he turned to the shuttering theaters of 42nd Street. His film How to Draw a Bunny: A Ray Johnson Portrait won the 2002 Sundance Special Jury Prize. Moore was a 2014 Guggenheim fellow.
