The photographs in his exhibit Innocents magnificently capture scenes of a post-apocalyptic world in awe-inspiring, large-scale images. Filling the gallery space with a larger-than-life presence, the photographs demand the viewer's attention to the deliberately disconcerting, dream-like imagery.

Lauren: Is all of your photography digital now?

Moby: Yeah, I grew up shooting film but, especially now, to print this big, I do have to shoot digitally.

Lauren: The large format of the photographs is remarkable.

Moby: I was talking to a friend of mine, a photographer. He was saying, and I sort of agree with this, that in the age of Instagram everyone is a good photographer.

One of the only things that professional photographers can do that Instagram photographers can't do is make huge prints. I love pictures taken with an iPhone. You know, people take amazing pictures with their iPhone. There's just not a lot of information there. You couldn't really print it more than like twelve inches by fourteen inches.

So, it is shooting digitally and then working a lot in [Adobe] Lightroom to really make sure that there's enough information to be able to print it real big.

'Innocents' will exhibit at Project Gallery in Hollywood until March 30.
