Reknowned British landscape and still-life photographer John Blakemore has produced a breathtaking body of work and has influenced generations of photographers through his teaching and workshops. Blakemore was born in Coventry in 1936. In the 1950s he travelled to Libya with the Royal Air Force whilst on National Service, and it was during this time he discovered photography. Further inspiration came from Edward Steichen's The Family of Man and also childhood experiences during the second World War. Following his own return from National Service, Blakemore, began to photograph the people of Coventry and its reconstruction after the war.His work has been exhibited world-wide and he is widely regarded as one of the finest photographers and printers in the United Kingdom. Blakemore has been the recipient of Arts Council awards, a British Council Travelling Exhibition, and in 1992 he won the coveted Fox Talbot Award for Photography. He was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 1998.
