Anyone with a passion for photography should consider subscribing to Wayne Ford’s excellent blog.
His prolific penning of thoughts and reviews have become an important resource for those with an interest in photography and photo books. The blog currently contains over 400 articles, an extensive reading list and a reference list of galleries and publishers.
Wayne Ford is the former Design Director of Haymarket Business Media, where he was responsible for the overall creative direction, development and brand identity of the group’s 30 plus brands, across offices in London and Hong Kong; and an art director of The Observer’s award winning colour magazine. He now runs his own design studio, working across the gamut of visual communication, design strategy and management, in both print and digital channels.
His design work has received many awards, including, D&AD, Art Directors Club, Society of Publication Designers, Type Directors Club, Society of News Design, and Periodical Publishers Association (PPA); and been published in numerous books and periodicals, and exhibited internationally.
Back in April 2012, I was delighted when Wayne wrote a piece on my landscape work, after visiting my first solo show, North Northwest Beginnings. His thoughtful words were undoubtably one of the highlights of the show.
