John French (1907 - 1966) was a fashion and portrait photographer born in Edmonton, London. This calendar features his beautifully styled black and white photography, which used natural light and low contrast where possible, making his photography suited to being reproduced in newsprint. French devoted much time to the positioning, lighting and poses of his models and became one of the top fashion photographers in London. Informative text accompanies each work and the datepad features previous and next months views.
