Peter Dazeley BEM FRPS presents a triple bill

Event info

Presented by DIGITAL IMAGING: THAMES VALLEY

A day of wide-ranging work from Peter Dazeley BEM FRPS.
Peter's work is diverse.  He will start his illustrated talk about his books, particularly his first book, 'Unseen London', which set him on his journey photographing London, and all the stories about his adventures doing this.  He will also touch upon his fine art work, including the beauty of using platinum printing. Finally he will talk about his life in advertising the highs and lows.
Biography: In the 1960s at the age of 15 Dazeley started his working life as a photographer.  Being dyslexic, Dazeley left school without any formal qualifications. "Dyslexia should be seen as a positive asset for a photographer, it gives me the ability to look at problems and objectives from a different point of view",  says Dazeley.
His fine art work has been a very large part of his overall output, exploring and experimenting with new ideas and developing techniques in the art of photography, including x-ray, limited focus, solarised (Sabatier effect), and anamorphic photography.  Dazeley's passion to take photography back to its roots is seen in his use of platinum printing for his fine art work. 
Fulfilling a lifelong passion to record the history of his beloved London, Dazeley has had three highly successful books published: 'Unseen London' (2014 ), 'London Uncovered' (2016) and 'London Theatres' (2017).
Through sheer hard work, passion and dedication to his art, he has reached the very top of his profession.  Approaching the age of 70, he can now look back with great satisfaction on what he has achieved both personally and professionally as a photographer, but also as a mentor and role model to younger photographers.
In 2013 Dazeley was honoured with Fellowship of The RPS. In the Queen's 2017 New Year's Honours list, he was delighted when he was awarded with a British Empire Medal for his services to photography and charity.
