About

Being a photographer can be a solitary and selfish pursuit, often necessarily so. You compete, aim to be the best and plot your romp towards the next triumph: for years OLYMPUS Visionary, Peter Dench operated like this.

With the domination of digital photography and no longer socialising at the film processing lab, combined with the newfound comfort in his forties and with his craft, Dench actively began to meet other British photographers, to take an interest in what they have done and the way in which they did it.

All of the photographers featured in this intimate and revealing exhibition have shaped Dench in some way; sometimes professionally, more often, personally. They are glimpses into the lives and practice of some of British photography’s most extraordinary characters.

An accompanying book featuring twelve photographers is published by Hungry Eye; delivered as a limited first edition of 500, a high quality, case bound coffee table book with gold foil detail.

“This new collection of interviews and photographs by Dench is hilarious and insightful, always engaging and written with an inimitable wit and style; an instant classic.”  Tom Knox, Thriller Writer
