Making History, From Cuba to Russia to Detroit, for the first time in the Netherlands revered American photographer Andrew Moore will have a exhibition in Amsterdam.

For the past 30 years his camera has documented a world full of forgotten places where the sharp blade of modernization and revolution has left a trace of destruction that at the eyes of Andrew Moore become masterpieces of Modern Art

"The images have different image lines, cultural, historical or visual. I leave it to the viewer to follow this one. There is always one that the viewer can follow."

"Moore has eight solo shows in New York on his name, and many exhibitions within and outside the U.S.. His works are part of collections such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, The Yale University Art Gallery, The Library of Congress, The Israel Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, The George Eastman House and The Canadian Centre for Architecture."

"The video for ‘Sycamore Feeling‘, the first single from Trentemøller’s new album ‘Into The Great Wide Yonder’ (album release end of May 2010) is written and directed by New York-based Danish video artist Jesper Just. Set in the deserted ghost town of Centralia, PA, notorious for a mine fire that has burned beneath the ground since 1962, the video shifts between images of the desolate cityscape with smoke and steam rising from the earth, and a woman moving through an abandoned house."
