Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past.” Andrew Moore takes the economic and political circumstances Marx had in mind and nests them within the circumstances of natural history: Detroit’s vines and mosses, the patient sands of Dubai, dusk light in New York.

Moore takes an interest in history of a public and legible kind. His pictures, in their directness and acuity, are not about his experience of places. They are about what an atonement to experience has to tell us about places that define the present.

Text from the book “Making History” by Joel Smith, Curator of Photography, Princeton University Art Museum
