A widely travelled photojournalist, David Moore was one of Australia’s most significant photographers. “Moore commenced his professional photographic career in Sydney with Russell Roberts’ studio in 1947. Later he worked with Max Dupain before travelling to London in 1951. He was the first Australian photojournalist to work consistently for the international picture magazines during their heyday in the 1950s. For seven years he photographed on assignment in the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Africa and the USA, and his work was published in [magazines including] The Observer, Time-Life, Look, The New York Times and Sports Illustrated. He was one of only two Australian photographers included in the Family of Man exhibition in New York in 1955…From the 1970s Moore was based in Sydney.” His work is held in many private and public institutions including the National Gallery of Australia, New York Museum of Modern Art, Le Bibliothéque Nationale, and the Smithsonian.
