Edward Barber

This morning, I learned that photographer Ed Barber died yesterday. Within a month cancer has claimed him. I've just found out and I feel desolate.

Ed's work has featured many times on this blog, most recently his Peace Signs exhibition last year at the Imperial War Museum. Ed was passionate about life; he was nonconformist, a liberal, rebellious, a maverick and I would say an iconoclast but he'd not like that word! Ed was thoughtful, kind and fun. He was my friend.

Aside from being a photographer, Ed was a father and husband and my thoughts are with his daughters Nina and Sonya and his wife Danny.
