A lot of his older work is off trees and nature at different times of the year. His newer work looks at more of an industrial look but i prefer this more. i think it they have more to them in the photos and make me what to look deeper into them to see what else is in the photos.

Jane Hope Bown CBE (13 March 1925 – 21 December 2014) was an English photographer who worked for The Observer newspaper from 1949. Her portraits, primarily photographed in black and white and using available light, received widespread critical acclaim and her work has been described as “a kind of English Cartier-Bresson.”

Jane takes photos a lot like David Baileys as she uses black and white but they have two completely different stiles as Jane photography people for portraits and micheal only done landscapes. I think her work is very good because of how much detail she can capture of the photos and how much black and white she gets on the photos to make them perfect.

David Royston Bailey, is an English fashion and portrait photographer. Born on 2 January 1938 (age 79) in Leytonstone, London England.

He produces portraits mostly in black and white mainly using white backgrounds to try and capture more texture and shadow/colour on the face.

I think he’s portraits are stunning but because of the white background I don’t like them as much as Janes. I feel these photos don’t have as much to look at and don’t catch my eye as much as hers do.
