Casey Moore is a London-based photographer with a fascination for New Zealand subjects. Born in Invercargill, but raised from the age of three in Switzerland and later London, Moore has kept a narrative of reconnection with his homeland running through his work.
This narrative is apparent in the way Moore photographs his subjects with a careful consideration of place. The works in his botanical series were taken in situ in the Fiordlands of the South Island, while his photographs of native New Zealand insects were taken in the British Museum: mirroring his own position as an Antipodean transplant in London.
A deep connection to materials is also woven through Moore's practice. He uses only analog methods for capturing and printing his photographs, and massages the large-scale prints by hand through chemical baths. This physicality has become integral to his work, and is reflected in the bodily experience of viewing his works.
