Photographer Andrew Moore is best known for capturing places of historical significance—Cuba, Russia, and post-recession Detroit—in all of their beauty and squalor. Now his interest has turned to a regional exploration of the American South—New Orleans, Tunica and the Mississippi Delta, and Atlanta—an area that has fascinated him since he first began to photograph. Moore, who lived in New Orleans for almost two years after college, was originally drawn to the light, surfaces, and patina found in the city’s architecture. From gin factories to decaying bridges and abandoned amusement parks, Moore’s Southern exploration is a revisitation and a way of marking time, allowing the artist to reflect on changes to the landscape as well as in his own life. Join Moore for a discussion of his career and his current series The South, selections from which appear in MOCA Jacksonville’s exhibition Southern Exposure.
The discussion is free and open to the public, but select your free ticket to reserve your spot because seating is limited.
