A new book by Peter Dench

Meet the Great Britons of Photography (Vol. 1)

In his new book, Reportage contributor Peter Dench profiles a dozen Britons whom he considers to be among the most important and influential photographers working today, a list in which he humbly includes himself. The other 11 luminaries of the lens are:

Jocelyn Bain Hogg
Marcus Bleasdale
Harry Borden
John Bulmer
Chris Floyd
Brian Griffin
Laura Pannack
Martin Parr
Tom Stoddart
Homer Sykes
Anastasia Taylor-Lind

The book serves as a celebration of British photography, providing an intimate look into the lives and work of this group of colorful characters.

“All of the photographers featured have shaped me in some way; sometimes professionally, more often, personally,” says Dench. “I view each piece as a collaboration, a written account of our time together, a glimpse into the lives and practices of extraordinary photographers, all of course, with a healthy dose of Dench.”

It’s by turns hilarious and insightful, and always engaging, written with a characteristic wit that was on display in Dench’s longtime column, Diary of a Sometime Working Pro, in Hungry Eye Magazine.
