A proud native Texan, Robert W Moore spent 37 years in the news, media and publishing business. In 1984, he was one of the founders of Voice Publishing Company, serving as Advertising Director until 1998 when he became sole owner and publisher. He left the company in 2013 to pursue his interests in travel and photography.
The Press Club of Dallas honored him in 2015 with the prestigious Excellence in Journalism Award, dubbed the North Texas Legend Award, for “amazing accomplishments and contributions to our industry, our community and North Texas.”
Robert’s focus today is Documentary and Street Photography in locations around the world including Iran, India, Myanmar, Japan, Vietnam, and the streets of Dallas, his hometown. He defines his photographic approach this way, “I look for scenes that are just everyday life, yet call up an emotional connection, a human to a place. Without that connection, it may be a great picture, but it has no soul.”
He credits Peter Poulides, Director, Dallas Center for Photography, in helping him pull his vision of street photography through the lens. He looks to the work of acclaimed documentarians and National Geographic photographers Ed Kashi and Sam Abell, and New York street photographer Robert Herman, to guide his work in narrative photography.
