Lichens for a Headstone – tribute to Fay Godwin
c. Michael St. Mark, c. 2005

Without any formal training in photography, Fay Godwin transcended the Oxbridge glass ceiling by marrying the influential publisher Tony Godwin and from there became a successful English landscape photographer and eventually pillar of the British photo art establishment during the 1960s 70s and 80s. Her work never strayed far from a monochrome (Black and White) brief.

Fay sadly passed away earlier this year in Hastings at the age of 74.
