Del Barrett ARPS reflects on the passing of Harvey Benge.

I was deeply saddened to hear that Harvey Benge passed away yesterday.  Awarded a direct fellowship in 2018, not only was Harvey an outstanding photographer, avid blogger and critical essayist, but he was always very generous with his time and support for other photographers.  He was a real champion for photographic democracy and will be sorely missed.   The photographic community is not shining as brightly this morning …

A couple of years ago, I interviewed Harvey for the London Region’s Capital Interest, and you can download a copy here.
