British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

In 113-pages Rita and Jack Tait relate the story of Ifor and Joy Thomas and the Guildford school of photography. Part biography and part a history of early post-war photographic education the book shows the importance of the Thomas’s and their influence across a large swathe of photographers and educators – including Jane Bown, Tessa Traeger, Julia Hedgecoe and Adam Woolfitt.  The Guildford school influenced a generation of photographers many of whom are still involved in the field.

The book is believed to be the first in-depth study of photographic teaching.
