Photographer

Andrew Moore is a New York-based photographer known for his long-term projects, which record the effect of time on the natural and built landscape. During childhood, he frequently accompanied his architect father to construction sites, developing an eye for mentally blueprinting spaces. He discovered his passion for photography at 12 years old, when he bought his first camera and started developing film in his attic darkroom. From there, he went on to study it at Princeton University before launching his career.

Since then, Andrew has traveled the world capturing it through the lens of his camera. His work is displayed in permanent museum collections around the globe and has been featured in major publications like National Geographic, The New York Times, and The New Yorker. He also won TIME Magazine’s Picture of the Year Award in 2010. He has published eight photography books and made a documentary feature film titled How to Draw a Bunny. In 2014, he was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship Award.
