2012 Featured Exhibit: Destroyed
by musician Moby
Best known for selling over 20 million albums worldwide, renowned musician Moby has also carved a respectable name for himself in the photography world. Snap! is pleased to present a selection of images from Moby’s current album-affiliated photo project “Destroyed” as part of our 2012 “Urban Wild” theme. Moby’s photos, taken while creating his latest album, introduce us to an side of touring that is often unexposed; secluded time spent in artificial spaces like hotel rooms and backstage waiting areas. The images also provide a striking and intimate look at Moby’s world and his creative process as an artist.
Moby says (as told to HuffPost Arts), “I take pictures as a way of both making sense of the strange environments in which I find myself and also as a way to stave off touring boredom and exhaustion.” Note: Autographed copies of the photobook “Destroyed” will be available exclusively in the Snap! V.I.P. lounge.
