Casey Moore is a UK-based photographer, New Zealand born and English raised. He spent much of his youth inside a darkroom and after a Masters degree in Psychology, he is self taught.

A sense of wonder for the natural world is the beginning for Moore’s work and he references the writing of surrealist Roger Caillois as an influence: ‘Without humanity, there remains aesthetic. It is nature itself that dictates human aesthetics and imagination.’  It is the search for this 'universal aesthetic' that drives the work.

Using traditional, analogue methods Moore’s large works are made by hand in his darkroom in East Sussex, England. Handmade prints on this scale take days to produce and a strong physical connection to the materials and chemistry runs through his practice. This is reflected in the bodily experiences of viewing the work.

Moore is with FHE Galleries in Auckland and Roberta Moore Contemporary in London. He has shown his work in the UK, NZ and Germany. His work is housed in private collections in the UK, NZ, Australia, US and Europe.
