One of the founding members of the Independent Group. He was a documentary and experimental photographer and artist. The Independent Group was a highly significant collection of writers, thinkers and creative practitioners which met at the ICA from 1952-5. Most often valorised as the fathers of pop, the broader contribution of the Independent Group to critical thinking and creative practice about visual culture has been underrated.
