Detroit Is Disassembled In Photography Book

The Queens Museum of Art in NYC is running an art exhibit of photographs from the book Detroit Disassembled through January 15th.

The exhibit, which is in its final week, is based on the photography book in which photographer Andrew Moore and Poet Laureate Philip Levine document the wasteland of what was once one of America’s most prosperous cities.

The book, published by the Damiani/Akron Art Museum, highlights the decay of what was once prominent architecture through recent photos. For example, Henry Ford’s office at the Model T plant is photographed with a carpet of moss growing on the floor. Another page shows the classrooms of the former location of Cass Technical High School — a prominent magnet school — vandalized and forgotten.

Editor’s note: The original version of this post misspelled Levine’s last name.
