As part of the BBC4 Photography season, I worked on a programme called On Camera: Photographers at the BBC. This documentary reveals the working practices, lives and opinions of some of the greatest photographers of the last 60 years. From Norman Parkinson to David Bailey, Eve Arnold to Jane Bown, Henri Cartier-Bresson to Martin Parr, for decades the BBC has drawn our attention to the creators of what has become the most ubiquitous contemporary art form. Pioneering BBC programmes like Arena, Monitor and Omnibus have given unique insights into the careers of photography’s leading practitioners. Through a selection of fascinating clips, this programme brings into focus the key genres – fashion, portraiture, documentary and landscape – and the characters behind the camera who have helped defined them.
Coming soon on BBC4 at 22:00 Thursday 26th of March
