Image of the Day

Andrew Moore, Model T HQ, Detroit. [click to enlarge]
(Funny, the colors remind me of this.)

From Moore's 2008-09 photographs of the Motor City, shown earlier this year at Yancey Richardson. See more from this beautiful and heartbreaking series (the result of seven trips to Detroit over a period of two years), along with other work, on Moore's website. A book of Moore's photographs, Detroit Disassembled, can be purchased here. The photographer will be signing copies at the gallery from 12 - 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 24.

(Detroit's struggle against oblivion is also the focus of this week's installment of Dateline's America Now series (Sunday at 7 p.m., 6 Central, on NBC). From the New York Times review: "[Reporter Chris] Hansen, who grew up in the Detroit suburbs and was a local television reporter in the city, uses his knowledge of the territory and some old connections to inject his examination with a personal touch and a heart lacking in other accounts.")
