British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

A while back I wrote a short biography of the British photographer Horace Roye most famous for his picture Tomorrow’s Crucifixion (1938) — a surreal image of a naked girl on a cross wearing a gas mask with clouds of smoke in the background. He was murdered in 2002 in Morocco aged 97.  Let me know what you think of the article.
