David Moore is a London based photographic artist using and interrogating documentary modes. He has exhibited and published internationally and has work held in many public and private collections.

David has published several monographs of his work. His most recent publication, ‘Pictures from the Real World. Colour Photographs from 1987-88’ was published in 2013 to critical acclaim

David’s 2017/18 project ‘Lisa and John’responds to the archive of Pictures from the Real World and employs theatre, installation, and collaboration. Lisa and John was launched at Format International Photography Festival in 2017, and included a theatre play, ‘The Lisa and John Slideshow’, written and directed by David as well as ‘Lisa and John, Oh My days!’ a series of scale 3D models depicting ‘the photographer at the scene’ making photographs in 1988.

The entire Lisa and John Project was exhibited and performed in London and Belfast in 2018 and received widespread acclaim.

Described as a ‘Northern Eggleston’ by the writer, Sean ‘o’ Hagan, his current practice addresses agency and a critique of documentary as a genre using installation and theatre as a means posing questions around the production of knowledge through photography.
