British Journal of Photography’s news and online editor Olivier Laurent speaks to Moby about his first photography book – Destroyed, which was released with his new album of the same name.
Moby shot the 60 photographs in Moby: Destroyed which captures his life on tour, displaying feelings of crowdedness to isolation. Moby states “I’m able to convey the mundanity of touring, juxtaposed with those moments of the strange and/or sublime. One minute on tour you’re by yourself in a soulless airport, the next minute you’re flying over the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. One minute on tour you’re by yourself in a soulless backstage area, the next minute you’re on stage pouring your heart out to 75,000 people. Touring is all contrasts and strangeness, and that’s what I’m trying to convey in these pictures.”
