No Bill. I think Izzy was the only one, and was at that time (I believe from memory, as Angela and I stayed with them in NuT) the partner of the late Murray Martin, who was the major driving force behind Amber Associates

Supplying photo credits for the humble, the gritty Magritey cover is Peter Turner's and the inside one is yours, Paul. In fact I published that same image (and those by several of the others in Singular Realities) in the 45-page article on British photography I did for U.S. Camera Annual 1977. (Any idea which came first? I can't recall.) By the way, Isabella Jedrzejcsyk (yep I do know how to pronounce it) was also a member of Amber. Any one else?

I endorse what Bill said. Good crew.This is catalogue from, I think, the first show in 1977 curated by Gerry Badger. It was a bit thin on documentary work, which Amber was well known for, so was a little controversial amongst the associates....

Amber has a distinguished history, beginning as a collective in 1968 and opening Side Gallery in '77, not least among whom is the photographer Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen. Head on up Tyneside and grab one of these jobs, someone. It's a special place.
