Steve Moore: Memorial

The Fayetteville Underground mourns the passing of photographer Steve Moore. We are grateful for all he has given the community with his art, and are pleased we were able to share his Fayetteville Panarama project with the community this past September.

A memorial service will be held at St Paul’s Episcopal Church community room in Fayetteville today, this Saturday, Dec. 19 from 2 – 4 pm.

In lieu of flowers, Moore’s family is requesting that donations be made to the Steve Moore Memorial Fund (in care of Sadie Moore) at the Bank of Fayetteville.

Here is a nice piece that was written about Steve Moore and posted by the Fayetteville Flyer. Steve will be missed.

Here is the press release from Steve Moore's exhibition this past September:

In the Hive gallery we have long time Fayetteville craftsman and photographer Steve Moore and his exhibition, A Panoramic Project. Moore’s photographic style is a culmination of his early film photography, influenced by Ansel Adams, and his more recent investigations of panoramic images using contemporary digital processes. His early film photography, documenting village life in Mexico, will be included in this exhibition along with his more recent documentary photographs of Fayetteville's changing landmarks over the past several years.

Moore's work is first inspired by light; illuminating from within a building or reflected off or around a structure. Whether you recall a location of Moore’s image as it once appeared or you come to it for the first time, you are left with a haunting sense of human intervention; the composition of a place and the artist's will to reveal a theatrical sense of time and light during a moment. This exhibition is curated by Leilani Law.
