Raymond Moore: Photographs (1968) "Raymond Moore (1920-1987) has been gone a long time. Yet this important and influential British photographer, considered a key player in the development of photographic practice in the UK, is not just gone but also almost forgotten. Photo-historians and academics do their best to bring his work to the attention of students; curators and gallery owners would love to be able to get their hands on his prints to exhibit or sell; publishers often wish to include his work in books on the history of photography. But, due to a still unresolved legal issue following his death, his archive of images languishes in some vault, hopefully well-protected, while his achievements and the importance of his contribution fade from memory..... 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" (Roy Hammans) For more info see Roy Hammans excellent site: http://www.fine-photographs.co.uk/index.php/photographers/rm Moore's very scarce first publication. .
