“When I look at the word photojournalism, for me the journalism side remains the most important. And the more beautiful and artistic we make the photos, the more people will pay attention to the stories we are telling.”


John Moore is a senior staff photographer and special correspondent for Getty Images based in New York City. He has worked for more than 25 years, first for the Associated Press and then with Getty Images since 2005. He has photographed in 65 countries on six continents covering the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and the American foreclosure crisis. Since 2010 he has concentrated on immigration between Latin America and the U.S. His first book “Undocumented” will be released in early 2018.
