Présentation de l'éditeur

Der amerikanische Fotograf Andrew Moore zeigt eine Stadt, die von der Natur überwältigt und dadurch in gewisser Weise sogar erneuert wird: Apokalyptische Straßenzüge mit leeren Lagerhäusern, verrostete Maschinenhallen, zerfallende Kirchen und Wohnhäuser mit Bäumen auf den Dächern, von Gras und Moos überzogene ehemalige Büroräume. Die Aufnahmen stammen aus den Jahren 2008 und 2009. Es ist das dritte Buch von Andrew Moore, der Professor an der Princeton University ist und in New York lebt.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Motor city madness 17 juin 2010
Par Robin - Publié sur
Format: Relié
To quote from the Product Description above: 'Today, whole sections of the city resemble a war zone, its once-spectacular architectural grandeur reduced to vacant ruins'. Most of us, of course, don't have personal experience of war zones but we can all pull up a mental picture which is probably partially accurate. Andrew Moore's quite extraordinary photos will confirm your mental image but the freaky thing is that Detroit is no war zone. The population didn't leave because of bombs or military intervention; mostly they didn't even leave but continue to survive amongst all this decaying industrial, public and private building detritus.

The thing that grabbed me and Moore's photos reveal it so often is the amount of physical equipment that was just left as buildings were abandoned. Page twenty-three shows a huge open-plan room of the Detroit Schools Book Depository, the whole floor covered with books that are slowly decaying. Page fifty-five has an amazing shot of one side of the Cass Tech High School, minus sixteen large classroom windows to reveal a jumble of desks, chairs, tables, casual seating and books and papers everywhere. Again at Cass, Moore spotted a wall clock with a plastic dial, part of which melted over the hour and minute hands, the only time you'll ever see a real Dali timepiece.

Several exterior shots of houses show them either collapsing or showing signs of heavy amateurish DIY. Page ninety-six has a house totally covered in foliage with just a sliver of the roof to be seen confirming that it is two stories. Some interiors really do look like bomb damage, with falling walls and ceilings. The circular lobby of the downtown United Artists Theater reveals some of the steel structure because chunks of the plaster have fallen off.

Moore's photos reveal disaster Detroit in beautiful even color throughout the book and 300 screen printing on a good matt art plus the large page size delivers a punch to these seventy amazing images.

The book obviously raises questions about urban decay and is Detroit the ultimate throwaway society city by the nature of what can be seen there. It also acts as a magnet for creative snappers. Photographers Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre: The Ruins of Detroit cover the the city but in a much more ambitious book of color photos. There are several shots repeated in both titles: the melted clock face, classrooms in the Cass Technical High school and a straight on photo of a house (the corner of Brush and Erskine) that is almost identical to one in Moore's book on page ninety-seven.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Big Book, Big Subject 26 septembre 2011
Par Jeffrey C. Chouinard - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a large picture book in which high-resolution photographs are presented in a large format. The images are appalling, heart-breaking, and strangely beautiful, all at the same time. The atmosphere is post-apocalyptic. Soaked schoolbooks are plumped up in clumps of mold, abandoned auto assembly lines are rusting, and green moss covers office floors. Cavernous railroad stations, ornate movie theaters, and fancy ballrooms crumble and rot. If this is the future of rust-belt cities, the forecast is alarming. It does remind me of Piranesi's 18th-century engravings of the ancient Roman Forum when it was a column-studded cow pasture ignored by time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Downtown Oblivion... 4 octobre 2013
Par Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Publié sur

Andrew Moore's hauntingly desolate photographs in DETROIT DISASSEMBLED add one more view of the slow-motion (the descent has gone on for far longer than most people realize) disintegration of this long-dead metropolis. Among the most memorable photos are: the snow-drifts through the Michigan Central Station, the collapsing Packard plant, the -literally- tons of moldering school supplies in the forgotten book depository, and the green carpet of moss growing on the floor of an office at Ford Motor Company headquarters! Astonishing in their bleakness, Moore's pictures capture the rotting of the corpse that was Detroit. There is also an essay at the back of the book by Philip Levine. I found it semi-entertaining (it's in a sort of "found poetry" style), but unnecessary, since the photographs tell the story wordlessly, and more completely on their own...

I visited the exhibition of these photos at the National Building Museum in DC. Sadly, it's almost impossible to get prints - so I bought this book and have been cutting out the pictures and framing them.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A disappearing city 25 juillet 2013
Par Mary Jane R. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Many of these places are now gone and I'm glad to see them not only preserved in these photos but also captured so they reveal their last glimpse of beauty. Some of the images are truly beautiful in a heart-shattering way. I'm not thrilled that the author is not local to Detroit and though he has a good eye for composition, I wonder how much further this could have been taken with someone who was more at home in these buildings. I still really recommend the book, both as art and as a historic record.
