Brad Moore’s photographs demonstrate a sophisticated sense of muted color and use of formal composition, that resonates strongly with the New Topographics movement of the 1970’s. While his sensibility is undeniably utilitarian, he succeeds in finding contrast and beauty in everyday environments and accentuating the passage of time on the built environment. His repertoire is consistently fresh in approach, yet maintains a singular vision that makes these refined artworks a highly valuable and important asset to the revisioning of the landscape in contemporary photographic practice.
“These photographs were shot in modest, well-worn, suburban cities in central and inland Southern California. Built in the 50’s and 60’s, these cities provided a new home and future to a post-war population. While Southern California’s coastal cities flourish, cities in these inland counties struggle”.—Brad Moore.
