Today’s guest is Ian Treherne
Born in Essex, a stone’s throw from Southend on Sea, it was Ian’s eye condition which by default naturally cropped the world around him, giving him a unique eye for capturing moments in time.
Ian became aware of the mechanics of photography as a child, fascinated with the magical box that froze the emotions which had transfixed his eyes onto a roll of film. It was after Ian’s school life, that his two greatest passions Photography and Art began to sculpt his life.

Book of the week is John Chillingworth Picture Post Photographer
At the age of 22, John Chillingworth was the youngest member of the ‘star’ team of photographic journalists on the magazine. He worked alongside many other great photographers, staffers and freelancers including Bert Hardy, Kurt Hutton, Felix Man, Bill Brandt, Thurston Hopkins, Grace Robertson, and Leonard McCombe. Editorially the magazine was liberal, anti-Fascist and populist. It covered everything from politics, through to sport, fashion, music, theatre and film, as well as picture stories of everyday life both in the UK and abroad. Chillingworth stayed with Picture Post for seven years producing a vast range of photo stories of a very high quality. Encouraged by the legendary picture magazine editor Tom Hopkinson, he learned to combine ‘story-telling’ images with the written word and worked with some of the finest magazine journalists of the age. Hopkinson, described Chillingworth as one of his great successes. Although John Chillingworth’s images are still reproduced in publications around the world, this is his first monograph and features a wide range of photographs, primarily taken during his Picture Post years. The book is introduced by Matthew Butson, Vice President of Hulton Archive, whose vast experience of the Picture Post archive stretches back almost 30 years.
