John Harvey

We’ve received this sad news from Roy Carr of Barry Camera Club.

It is with great regret that I announce the death of John Harvey, who passed away on Wednesday 30th September, aged 92.

John had been ill for some time, though he remained active and always underplayed his condition being the private man that he was.

He was the oldest member of Barry Camera Club and had contributed much to the Club, including a spell as Chairman for 10 consecutive years. John was always an active participant in competitions, and took particular delight in producing prints, often making work which defied photographic norms as he expressed his particular creativity. He was quick to make the transition from film (his first love) to digital and embraced the new technology and what it could offer.

An important part of John’s character was his generosity. He was always one to encourage others and offer advice where it was requested, particularly to newcomers who were making their way. John had immense experience and creativity from which he could draw and was happy to put this to work for Club Members.

Of course, John was also well known beyond the Club both as a Presenter and a Judge. His gentle, thoughtful voice and manner made him a great communicator, backed by a wealth of photographic knowledge and images. He was a member of the Royal Photographic Society and gaining their Associate of The Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) distinction

His loss will be felt deeply by Barry Camera Club and many more besides. May he rest in peace.
