Charles Edridge – Assignments
20/4/05 - 3/5/05
The exhibition, entitled “Assignments”, was curated by Graham Wood, Director of Photography at The Times newspaper and included around 30 black and white images which span Edridge’s remarkable sixty-year career as a photojournalist. Beginning as a soldier in the Second World War, when he was assigned to take intelligence pictures, Edridge was greatly influenced by Cartier Bresson. He subsequently worked in London, New York and Paris and has had his images published in many major national and international titles, including The Sunday Times and The Sunday Times Magazine.
