This website and the accompanying book is an attempt to preserve the images and supporting details for family members now and in the future. I hope also that it will be a way of opening Ken’s work up to a wider audience and perhaps a way of gaining the recognition for him that I think his work richly deserves.

With grateful thanks to Bob Law and Gary Jeffrey at PhotoArtGB for producing the digital images and to Dave Blakey for producing this website.
