John Blakemore: Photographs 1955-2010

Next month Dewi Lewis publishes a particularly beautiful book: the collected works of photographer, John Blakemore

Next month Dewi Lewis publishes a particularly beautiful book: the collected works of photographer, John Blakemore…

Currently exhibiting work at the Hoopers Gallery in London, Blakemore is known for his darkly detailed still lives.

As a bookmaker and craftsman printer, Blakemore’s hands-on approach seems to add a tactile richness to his photography. At the same time, his landscapes often have an ethereal quality which makes them seem as if they’re of another realm entirely. Either way, his work offers up enchanting visions of the natural world.

John Blakemore: Photographs 1955-2010 contains over 280 photographs, is published as a clothbound hardback (£45), and available from Dewi Lewis.
