John Downing was Chief Photographer on the Daily Express with a career that
spanned over five decades and took him to over 100 countries and all seven
continents. He not only witnessed natural and man-made disasters, but also war
zones and famine; he covered royal tours, political events, the famous and the
infamous, the needy and the poor.
He has won numerous awards, including the British Press Photographer of the Year
an unprecedented seven times, the United Nations Gold Medal in 1990 and
International Photographer of the Year in 1994.
In 1992 he was honoured with an MBE for ‘Services to Journalism’; in 2001 he was
presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the UK Picture Editors Guild and
in 2011 he received an Honorary Fellowship of The Royal Photographic Society.
Legacy is a long overdue celebration of his illustrious career. Press photographers
are often overlooked for their contribution to photography but it is their images that
define how we see the world’s events unfolding on a daily basis. John Downing’s
work is right there at the pinnacle of photojournalism.
