Tuesday on the PBS NewsHour, Jeffrey Brown talks to Philip Levine about his long career in poetry and about his early life working in the Detroit auto industry. Their conversation took place at the Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York, where an exhibition of photographs by Andrew Moore was on display that captured the lost world of Detroit — abandoned auto plants taken over by plants, burned out high schools frozen in time.

A book of Moore’s photographs from Detroit will be published this spring. It’s called “Detroit Disassembled.” To see additional work, visit his Web site.
