Moore – Published Photographs

Although Raymond Moore's work is regularly referenced in publications about photography, during his lifetime only two major collections of photographs were published in book form: Murmurs at Every Turn in 1981, and Every So Often in 1984. In addition, two brief catalogues were produced to accompany exhibitions: Photographs by Raymond Moore, produced in 1968 by The Welsh Arts Council to accompany a touring show, and 49 Prints, published by The British Council in 1986 to accompany an international touring exhibition of his work. I have also included the work published in the 1967 Camera Owner article and the 1977 Creative Camera International Yearbook retrospective.

Raymond Moore - Chronology

This is an attempt to give a tentative time-line of Raymond Moore's life. It undoubtedly contains some errors as information about him is relatively hard to track down. If you can add to or correct it in any way, please contact me.

Everything beckons us to perceive it,
murmurs at every turn,
"Remember me"

by Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)
