About the Author
In the 1960s, David Stanford started out studying Painting and History of Art at Walthamstow School of Art alongside such figures as Ian Dury, Vivian Stanshall and Peter Greenaway. On graduation from the Royal College of Art, he established his own photographic studio, photographing a number of famous bands for album sleeves. Over the next 25 years, he shot a wide range of high-profile advertising campaigns and fashion spreads for magazines in London and Paris. He specialized in fashion and beauty, but also managed to cover everything from cars to wars, and even directed a number of TV commercials and film documentaries. He has recently returned to painting, but still travels extensively on his personal, eclectic, photographic adventures. He has enthusiastically embraced digital photography, and very rarely now uses traditional film. He lives in East Sussex.
