I learned this week that nearly a year ago Robert Elwall, the photographic historian and photographs curator at the Royal Institute of British Architects, had died.
In 1990, Olive Cook gave me a signed and dedicated copy of ‘English Cathedrals‘, which had just been published. In the Foreword she says that the book was needed because relatively few of Edwin’s photographs of cathedrals had ever been published, yet it was a subject to which he was considerably drawn.
This article was first published in the March/April 1981 edition of Creative Camera magazine, a special double issue entitled ‘British Photography Now’. Moore was talking to art historian Ian Jeffrey, and the interview took place just prior to the opening of Moore’s major retrospective, held at London’s Hayward Gallery. This show was only the second exhibition by a living British photographer to be held there. The first had been Bill Brandt in 1970.
This article was the first time Raymond Moore had work published in a photographic magazine. It is from Issue 36 of Camera Owner in June 1967, the precursor of Creative Camera, and was written by J S Lewinski.
In 1984, in the September 15 edition of Amateur Photographer, David Brittain (later to become editor of Creative Camera) wrote an article entitled ‘Moore Land’.
Whilst inevitably geared in part to the kind of readership that Amateur Photographer attracts, the article was a thorough and enlightening look into Moore’s approach to making what he himself called ‘shots’.
