A Celebration Of Chris Moore’s Iconic Photographs In New Book, Catwalking
A fashionphile’s delight – six decades worth of legendary catwalk photographer Chris Moore’s images collated into a single book, for the very first time. Renowned for being the man who brought runway images to the masses via his website, catwalking.com, and went on to transform the medium into an art form all of its own, this new book will cover each of the decades he has shot the runway – spanning iconic shows from John Galliano’s graduation to Alexander McQueen’s final collection, photographing just about every supermodel and major fashion moment in the process. Summary: Mr Moore’s seen it all.
Those images make up Catwalking: Photographs by Chris Moore, accompanied by words from the brilliant (and award winning) Alexander Fury, who lends his encyclopaedic fashion brain to each chapter, writing accompanying essays that contain extensive interviews with Chris himself and situate the images in a wider context of the era. Combined, it is testament to a man whose images have come to define modern fashion – images that, even in this post-internet age, continue to inspire awe.
