David Moore

Fine Art Programme; Senior Lecturer, MA Photography

Senior lecturer David Moore is a well-known and active photographer whose work is widely published and internationally exhibited, and whose photographs reside in national collections. He has two significant research outputs included in REF 2014: his 2008 book The Last Things and an exhibition held at The Bluecoat in Liverpool, entitled 28 days. Both are an extension of his ongoing ‘State Apparatus’ project.

In 2013, his 1988 series – Pictures from the Real World, Colour Photographs, 1987-88 – was published for the first time by Dewi Lewis Publications, with an accompanying essay by David Chandler.

David Moore’s enquiries with the medium of photography reside within the social and political. They involve the document, collaborative and community practice, and post-panoptic observations of physical sites of political and corporate power via still and moving image, as well as the photographic monograph.

His practice considers agency of the subject within historical and contemporary contexts and the effect of corporate or political hegemony as expressed or visible in differing contexts. He seeks bespoke, useful and accessible responses to modern social conditions within a critically-informed practice.

He is an associate member of the Photographic Archive Research Centre within UAL and has been the recipient of several large-scale funding bids from Arts Council England, The British Council and Central Saint Martins.

More recently he has become an internal reader for practice-based PhDs at LCC.
