Thirty years of looking.....photographs by Garrick Palmer

Garrick Palmer - Prints and Photographs

I recently spent a very enjoyable day with a printmaker friend of mine, Garrick Palmer. We spent the afternoon talking about his work as a wood engraver and photographer. He is one of this country's most highly regarded wood engravers, having made stunning engravings for books such as Moby Dick for the Folio Society. Wood engraving is just a part of Garrick Palmer's life, as over recent years he has become well known for his photography. Just opened in Portsmouth is a great exhibition of his photographs of Portsmouth seafront. Garrick was born in Portsmouth in 1933 and has taken photographs of the seafront regularly over the last 30 years.

Mr Palmer is the greatest living wood engraver, no doubt about it.
