Continuing SHOWstudio's tradition of inviting a different guest each month to take the reigns of our Tumblr, 1-7 December will see Lucy Moore, director of specialist fashion and photography bookshop Claire de Rouen, share some of the things she finds on her bookish travels.
Trained as an artist at Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, Moore went on to run Claire de Rouen Books with her friend, model Lily Cole, after de Rouen’s death in 2012. A long-established hub for students, photographers and designers including Giles Deacon and Jonathan Saunders, the Soho store continues to support both established and upcoming photographers in fashion, documentary and fine art, with everyone from de Rouen’s friends David Bailey and Bruce Weber to Tyrone Lebon on the shelves. In addition to staging small projects, installations and events in store, Moore writes widely and recently published Lily Cole’s first book Gabriel Orozco: Impossible Utopias.
Head over to the SHOWstudio Tumblr from the Monday, 1 December to view Moore’s first posts and in the meanwhile, revisit past takeovers by Alistair O’Neill, Alexander Fury, Simon Foxton, Liberty Ross and many others.
