British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

To pay the ultimate tribute to a photographer, lecturer and judge, friends at Oxford Photographic Society has produced a book of 140 stunning photographs including stills, portraits and manipulated images (using filters and materials including orange peel, tissue paper, glass and sandpaper!). All the images in the book were taken from slides made by Peter Upton before the advent of digital cameras and computer software.

Mr Upton was a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, and a member of its national council and the executive committee of its creative photography group who sadly passed away last year, aged 75. He was recognised for his work, including an award from the Federation of International Artistic Photographers, and his work has been shown worldwide and he often spoke at UK camera clubs and judged competitions. 

The full news article can be found here, and to order a copy of the book, which costs £28, call Mrs Upton on 01869 242491.
