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. The “Meridian” of the title of this series 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. Set within the context of that harsh backdrop, the photographs not only portray the land itself but also reflect upon the modern-day challenges posed to those who live there.
