Len Grant

September 16, 2008

Len Grant gave a talk about his career last week at Manchester’s Creative Industries Development Service. He showed some new work which is a lot more about people than the architecture and regeneration he is known for. I’m not the only photographer who owes Len a lot for his encouragement. A few years back I won a competition (pictured) he’d organised for the Imperial War Museum North and the now defunct City Life magazine. He told me about RedEye and got me to take photography more seriously. 

P.S. He didn’t mention A Way of Life – his book about the funeral trade which is my favourite.
