In his photographs, he captures a magical sense of air, habitat and character—whether of spaces or people—that make his photographs come alive. Moore's illustrious subjects have included Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen Mother, Indira Gandhi, David Bowie, Pandit Ravi Shankar, Ronald Reagan, Satyajit Ray, Anita Desai and Tracey Emin, among many others. His photographs can be found in the collections of @metmuseum
