Hungry Eye Announces Unique Collaboration with Peter Dench

Peter Dench’s regular feature, The Diary of a Sometime Working Pro, has been one of the few constants in the Hungry Eye Journal since its inception in October 2011.

Peter’s natural, insightful and often brutally honest accounts of forging a career in image-making, make for compelling reading and are often the first words that our loyal subscribers will read in any given edition. Naturally, discussing ideas over a drink or two with Peter, the ‘Great Britons of Photography’ project was born. Peter was to travel, spend time with and ultimately interview, the first round of Great British photographers that he considers to be among the most important and influential currently gracing the planet for the very first book project from the stables of Hungry Eye.
