About Lloyd E. Moore

Lloyd E. Moore was born in Columbus, Ohio on February 10, 1931. Moore served in the United States Marine Corps from 1950-1954 and was stationed in Korea during the Korean War from 1952-1953. After the war, he attended Ohio State University where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1957 and Juris Doctor in 1958. Moore practiced law in Ironton, Ohio from 1959-1996. Moore was also a photographer, and he used his interest and skill in photography to help his clients by using photographs as exhibits in court cases. He also met with and photographed numerous individuals throughout southeast Ohio, particularly those living in Lawrence County. A selection of those photographs was published in the book Face to Face: The Photography of Lloyd Moore (Ohio University Press, 2003). Moore’s photography was exhibited nationally and internationally, and some of his work is now part of collections at the Huntington Museum of Art in Huntington, West Virginia and the International Polaroid Collection in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Select exhibition prints of Moore’s work are housed at Ohio University’s Kennedy Museum of Art.

After he retired, Moore, and his wife, Marilyn, moved to Athens, Ohio, where Moore continued to take photographs, primarily of community events, local businesses, and his various explorations with nature.

Moore died on December 17, 2010.
