Telling tales of times lost, the photography of Andrew Moore is nostalgically emotive.

The New York-based artist has captivated with his photo series that shows the decay of buildings all over the world. His work is stunning in its show of previously grandiose structures that have seen the effects of time, wear and human destruction. Inescapably fascinating, his captures have been made into books that showcase the decaying interiors.

In an almost surreal way, the evoked emotion is expertly executed by Moore's use of contrast and color texture. The publisher of his work best describes his mission: "Moore seeks out disused, wrecked buildings and captures the moment that nature stakes her claim on their ravaged grandeur." The message of these photographs is one of nostalgia and hyper-awareness of effects on human creations.
