This week's Clic Pick is a signed copy of Destroyed by Moby. Please join us Wednesday, May 11th, to purchase your copy, and be amongst the first to see an exhibit of select photographs from the book.
Destroyed takes us behind the scenes on an international journey with Moby, introducing us to the strange and disconcerting life of touring that is often not exposed: the time spent isolated in anonymous, mundane spaces like hotel rooms, airports, and backstage waiting areas. Moby has been taking pictures as long as he’s been making music, or ever since he was nine years old when his uncle presented him with a Nikon F camera. “Touring is all contrasts and strangeness, and that’s what I’m trying to convey in these pictures.” The title and front cover of Destroyed, both album and book, is the product of Moby’s keen photographer eye. The eye-catching image depicts the final part of an LED security warning: Unattended luggage will be destroyed, which Moby snapped as it flashed up, one word at a time, in a deserted hallway at New York’s La Guardia airport.
