Two names from the world of photography you may be familiar with have recently passed away. Brian Duffy we mentioned in a news piece earlier in the year, following his BBC TV program. He passed away at the end of May aged 77.

While John Hedgecoe who was known too many for an amazing range of book titles published under his name, died on June 3rd aged 78. Those publications have helped many increase their knowledge and pleasure from their photography. He is also the photographer of the most reproduced image as one of his pictures of the Queen has been used as the starting point for her image on our postage stamps.

End. 08/07/10).
