Synopsis: In Dirt Meridian, Andrew Moore takes to the air to document the High Plains of North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska in a series of stunning, large-format photographs. The "meridian" of the title refers to the 100th meridian, the longitude that neatly bisects the US and has long been considered the dividing line between the East and West. Much of the meridian traverses America's so-called flyover country, those sparsely populated landscapes between the urban centers on either coast. Other parts of the meridian cross contentious zones such as the heavily fracked Bakken formation in North Dakota.
Dirt Meridian interweaves two stories: the myths and history of the vast, severe American High Plains alongside portraits of the people who live there today. Along the way, Moore worked with ranchers, farmers, crop dusters, game wardens, writers and historians to capture the mythology and reality of the High Plains. Many photographs in this book were taken using a specially modified camera in a low-flying plane; the resulting pictures, with their literal bird's-eye view, offer a unique perspective on this quintessential, seemingly boundless American landscape.
American photographer Andrew Moore (born 1957) is widely acclaimed for his photographic series, usually taken over many years, recording the effects of time on the natural and built landscape.
Review: I find so many of the photographs to be moving, dignified, and deeply sympathetic, I am not sure you can ask more of a photographer. (Lyle Rexer Photograph Magazine)
Title: Andrew Moore: Dirt Meridian
Book Condition: New
Book Description Damiani. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Dirt Meridian, Andrew Moore, In this latest book by the acclaimed photographer of Detroit Disassembled, Andrew Moore takes to the air to create an intimate vision of the High Plains. The "Meridian" of the title refers to the 100th meridian, the longitude that neatly bisects the country and has long been considered the dividing line between the fertile green East and dry brown West of the United States. Much of the meridian traverses America's "flyover country", those remote and sparsely populated landscapes with a long history of repeated drought and failed dreams. Yet other parts of the meridian overlap bustling and contentious zones such as the heavily fracked Bakken formation in North Dakota. "Dirt Meridian" interweaves both these stories together: the enduring myths and rich history of a place where so little meets the eye, alongside a portrayal of those who continue to live amidst its vast and severe magnificence. Many photographs in this book were made using a specially modified camera in a low flying plane; the resulting pictures, with their literal bird eye's view, offer the viewer a unique perspective of this quintessential "American" landscape of no conspicuous markers or limits. Moore was also assisted by a wide- ranging group of ranchers, farmers, crop dusters, game wardens, writers, and historians during his ten years of work on this project. The book includes a preface by the late noted author Kent Haruf, a story by the writer Inara Verzemnieks, an essay by the Holland Curator of American Western Art at the Joslyn Art Museum, Toby Jurovics, as well as extensive set of endnotes about the images themselves.
