The Glen Moon Photographs primarily document the architecture of many public and private structures and spaces in and around SE Michigan, through both interior and exterior shots. Images of the Mies van der Rohe designed residential district, Lafayette Park, for example, are among the important documented sites. Also included are select cultural events, such as the Ford Jazz Festival, the Detroit Festival of the Arts and the Annual Indian Village Home Tour, a Detroit neighborhood event. Images in the collection are the result of Moon's work for architectural and design firms such as Albert Kahn Associates, local organizations, and publications, among other clients.
