Roger Bamber: Out of the Ordinary

Roger Bamber: Out of the Ordinary

Roger Bamber


For 50 years one of Britain’s leading photojournalists, Roger Bamber has poured his life’s work into this reflection of a career which encompassed everything from riots and bombings to the crazy world of rock and pop as well as capturing with a sympathetic eye the demise of traditional British industries and steam trains. He was happiest finding creative people with a story to tell and preferred working outdoors, ideally within sight of the sea and finding the extraordinary in ordinary people. He was British Press Photographer of the Year, British News Photographer of the Year (twice) and won many awards for his features on the arts.
