Roger Mayne 1929 –2014 was an English photographer, best known for his documentation of the children of Southam Street, London. Self-taught, he was passionate about photographing what he knew – most famously, inner London. His skill in absorbing the radicalism of post-second world war “humanitarian photography” and interpreting it with artistic vision established him as one of the 20th century’s leading photographers. Children feature frequently in both his rural and urban imagery: Mayne was dedicated to the whole subject of childhood. He worked closely with the pioneering sociologists Peter and Iona Opie, for whom he documented children at work and in the playground. Please allow 3-4 weeks for shipping.
