Hedgecoe, John - AktFotografie
On his 14th birthday he got his first camera. During his military service, he took part in aerial photography to document the bomb damage of the war.
From 1957, he was enrolled at the Guildford School of Art, studying under the pioneering photographers Joy and Ifor Thomas. What was special about this couple was that they disapproved of the use of 35mm cameras. Instead, the students were encouraged to frame their subjects in front of large technical cameras.
Hedgecoe spent much of his free time on his own photo shoots. He experimented with color and published his work wherever he could. Such as Amateur Photographer or the society magazine Queen, for which he worked from 1957 to 1972. He regarded this magazine as a great stepping stone to other freelance works. He has also had publications in The Sunday Times, The Observer, The Daily Telegraph and magazines such as Vogue and Life.
