Moore (1898-1986) recognised Hedgecoes ability to capture the essence of his work in photographs, while Hedgecoe in turn developed an intense admiration for Moore and his work, and became a regular visitor to the sculptors studios for over thirty years.The book is divided into three sections. In the first, Hedgecoe creates through personal reminiscence, quotations from Moore, and a truly masterful photographic essay, an evocation of the roots of Moores genius as a sculptor, and most particularly, his clear and unerring sense of the monumental.

The second section is an exposition of many of Moores most important works as captured in Hedgecoes photographs, which now enjoy a classic status. The sculptures are interspersed with contemporary pages from Moores notebooks giving a real insight into his way of thinking.

The third section reproduces, in chronological order, more than 750 photographs of the sculptural forms Moore created throughout his life. This will create an invaluable resource for students and teachers of art history, and for the many thousands of admirers of Moores work. Never before has such a comprehensive review of Moores work been available in a single volume.
