Peter Ekin Wood

Newport Photographic Club sadly report the passing of Past President and Honorary Member Peter Ekin Wood.

For many years he worked as a professional Photo-journalist before taking up an Editorial appointment with the Newport Argus newspaper. One of his last talks was to Cymru Mono in 2019 when he brought some of the brutally heavy tools of the trade from his camera collection together with a selection of B&W images from his time interviewing and photographing the celebrities of the entertainment sector.

His extensive library of portraits included “Professor” Jimmy Edwards, Phil Silvers (Sergeant Bilko), Petula Clark, Peter Sellars, Norman Wisdom, Tommy Trinder, Frankie Howerd, Rod Hull & Emu, Tommy Cooper, Ronnie Corbett and Richard Attenborough, to name but a few.

Peter was an active member of NPC and a supporter of the WPF; competing and giving talks until his retirement to the Gower. We shall miss his wry view and insights into the world of commercial (news) photography – our thoughts go out to his family.
