British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Obituary: Keith Cavanagh, Photography Curator

An impassioned campaigner for photography for over 30 years, untroubled by ego or personal ambition, Keith Cavanagh was a loyal, long term friend and supporter to very many photographers, and particularly young practitioners looking for help in achieving their work's first public airing.

The British Journal of Photography pays tribute to a man who was a tireless supporter of photography in the UK, best known for championing new talent and establishing the Tom Blau Gallery in London. You can read the tribute here.

Thanks for your comments. I don't know him personally, but from what I have read, he seemed to have made quite an impact and important contribution to British photography. Condolences to the family.

This is terribly sad news. I knew Keith when I showed in a group show at the Tom Blau Gallery and remember him as a warm and generous man.
