John Blakemore

For many years John has taught both the aesthetics and practice of photography to the students at the University of Derby, a much admired and respected degree course, where he is Reader in Photography. He holds an MA in film studies, is an external assessor for the Royal College of Art and in 1998 was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society. Recipient of numerous Arts Council awards, Johnís work has appeared in many publications and been exhibited all over the world. Starting as a freelance photographer in 1956, John soon moved through his personal work, to become Englandís leading landscape photographer, then transferring his unique and elegant photographic style into areas as diverse as still life, documentary, portraiture and Polaroid colour. He has been involved in photographing a nuclear waste dumping site in Lincolnshire for the C.P.R.E. and has featured in the TV programmes Exploring Photography and World Photography. Spirit of Place was published in 1979. 1991 saw the publication of Inscape, a major retrospective monograph.. The Stilled Gaze, based on his Tulip series, was published in November 1994. Recently he has been making exquisite hand made books, with both B&W and colour photographs. 2002 sees his first show of colour work.

Beauty in Contemporary Photography

In depth practical and illuminating exploration of photography - from landscape to still life, fine printing to bookmaking.

A workshop with John Blakemore is always a unique experience. Johnís breadth of knowledge across photography - art and craft, as shown in his wondrous prints will be open for examination with this most generous and accomplished of teachers. There will be a section on bookmaking, and the group will participate in creating a composite still life and create a book from individual projects. Johnís gentle manner will lead to an enjoyable discussion of philosophical as well as technical questions. By working with John this is an occasion to increase your powers of perception and learn or hone photographic skills.
