Sixty Years in Sixty Minutes


International Edition

About the Book

This is a portfolio of a mixed bag of events, and objects that have caught my eye and been recorded as of interest to me. Ilford's old slogan "For Faces and Places," was very apt. It could take just sixty minutes to look through the book or you may want to look through sixty times who knows? It spans a sixty-year period of life which has passed by my lens. I have selected the most memorable ones, which are likely to mean more to viewers beyond the family circle so to speak. Photography can be so, so personal I have found. Many of these images can never be repeated. Some will stand the test of time better than others. I would like to think that British Amateur Photojournalism never dies and ordinary people such as myself can and will make the effort to continue recording for posterity. In black and white please, it has for me and many enthusiasts alike, an archaic charm that no other art form can beat.
About the Author: Born in May 1940 to the crashing accompanyment of Nazi bombers during their Blitz on Sheffield steel City, I survived and was brought up by loving parents and grandparents who formed my character and shaped my life. Luckily I attended the Rowlinson Secondary Technical School in it's heyday with a leaning towards engineering: alas no more as it sank into the pool of grey comprehensive system education. My regular full time occupation was as a professional design engineer of heating and building services based in North England and travelling to numerous sites in the course of my career. For many of my active years I was a member of the Phoenix Mountaineering Club including a term as President and underwent many treks and climbs across the Himalaya. I have also travelled to seek out wild landscapes in Patagonia, Australia, Khirgistan, the U.S.A. India and Tibet. I have been a long time member of Dronfield Camera Club, The Leica Society and the Photographic Association of Great Britain as photography has been a big part of my life. Since my teen years I have continually tried to catch photo glimpses of people and things I found interesting and it is good for me in my 80th. year to look back on these with fondness.
