Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's wonderful that this work has finally been published in book form - David Moore is one of the UK's best documentary photographers, and is an influence on the generations that have followed him as he is a key photography teacher at Central St Martins art school. This book features his early work, documenting the UK working class in the 1980s, and is an important piece of social and photographic history.

Moore's style has evolved immensely since this work, while his themes have remained throughout. This book is instructive in highlighting the evolution of a key photography practitioner and tutor. While the small is short, every image counts - it has been edited with great care and precision.

A key photobook for those interested in social documentary, the UK working class, or the evolution of a great photographer.

If you get the sense Martin Parr (Moore's on time teacher) has trouble not being ironic, ironically this is one of the things Moore does best. They're beautifully complicated, sympathetic, honest pictures that reward those who keep returning to them. Not a single 'miss' in the book.

This is a great book, rather small in content as it only contains 18 photos, but covering an important time of change in Britain in a superb manner. If your've enjoyed work by Martin Parr, Paul Graham or Chris Killip, you'll love this one. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, highly competent work. 8 Nov. 2013
By mrsstreet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's hard to break new ground in this genre. This is competent work and worth a look.
It is the peculiar subjective element that distinguishes work of this kind that seems
a trifle subdued...
