A Monumental Vision
Throughout his career, photographer John Hedgecoe maintained a close and creative friendship with the celebrated sculptor Henry Moore. This handsome volume, divided into three sections, features all the sculptural forms created by Moore in his lifetime. Hedgecoe begins with a personal reminiscence, a masterful photographic essay, and an evocation of the roots of Moore's genius. In the second section, Hedgecoe presents a photographic exposition of many of Moore's most important works; and the final section reproduces, in chronological order, more than 750 thumbnail images of the sculptural forms Moore created throughout his life. A magnificent resource for students, teachers, and the many admirers of Moore's work. John Hedgecoe is Professor Emeritus at the Royal College of Art in London.
