Chris Moore, the master of catwalk photography, has been documenting runway shows since the ‘50s when he started working as a photo assistant at Vogue. After his brief stint at Condé Nast, he built Catwalking in 1999, the first archive of runway photography before the inception of Style.com. To celebrate his legacy, Moore has decided to partner with editor Alexander Fury to create a book entitled Catwalking: Photographs by Chris Moore.

The book highlights iconic moments from some fabulous runways of seasons past, including Alexander McQueen’s SS10 Plato’s Atlantis collection, John Galliano’s graduate collection, and the supermodel finale from Versace’s FW91 show. The book also includes interviews and essays by Fury that delve into the photographer’s legacy and favorite moments. While Moore’s photography career may be coming to a close, you can relive all of his best moments in the book out now.
