Bio

The Ego page... Much better to let the pictures do the talking!
Who?

John Duder. Born 1953. Practising Christian (hoping to get better at it). Happily married with two grown-up offspring. Amateur photographer by inclination since 1967. Internal auditor by profession.

Why?

Because God made the world full of beauty: the landscape, the trees, the rocks and the people. Particularly the people, and especially their eyes, which reflect their souls and their Maker.

What?

Almost anything. People, and places. But I put most time and effort into classical figure photography, which allows me to work with beautiful, intelligent people to produce something that neither of us could create alone. It is a great privilege.

When?

Whenever possible! I always carry a camera, just in case! The world is a very beautiful place, despite all the terrible things we've done to it and each other.

How?

I've developed my own black-and-white pictures for 40 years, and the way that the image appears on the paper is still magical. I aim to produce silver gelatin prints that show some of the beauty I see around me. Occasionally, I stray into the digital camp - but film is my first love!
