Details

In March 2018 powerHouse Books published his book Undocumented: Immigration and the Militarization of the United States-Mexico Border. This work represents ten years of Moore’s photojournalism on the issues of immigration and border security in the United States. The goal of the project was to take a comprehensive approach to humanize the issue of immigration, which is often related in terms of statistics.

Based in New York, Moore has worked in more than 75 countries on five continents. After graduating from the University of Texas in 1990, he joined the Associated Press, and over 15 years has covered stories in Nicaragua, India, South Africa, Mexico, and Egypt. Since 2005, Moore has been a correspondent for Getty Images, working through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and in particular Pakistan, where he captured the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, for which he was awarded the prestigious Robert Capa Gold Medal award.
