Raymond Moore : Photography

“The selection of particular images by an individual can be just as much a form of creative
communication as any other graphic medium, and to relate these images in a book or
exhibition can be a compelling revelation of a particular way of life.” Raymond Moore

“The strange, suggestive forms of rock and sand, the brooding presence of landscape and the almost surrealist interiors of old buildings are what provide me with visual equivalents to feeling, which I must have to justify a photograph. I am quite unable to explain why I choose particular objects in preference to others, it’s like asking a musician to explain or justify a series of notes. My concern anyway is often more with the shapes, tones and textures objects possess, rather than with any literary overtones they may contain. The message is a visual one.”

[Extract : In His Own Words… : Creative Camera Magazine, November 1968.]

    These images make me swoon. My absolute favourite English photographer.
    It is almost unforgiveable that he remains so little known in his own country.
    Thank you so much for posting these here.

    A major artist/photographer, still for the most part unrecognised even in his native land. Wonderful photographs. Thank you.
