Geoff Davies

Geoff Davies_George Coupe

1936 – 2015

Geoff was a long time member of Lancashire Monochrome, Bolton Documentary Photography, Bolton Photographic Society and Bolton Digital Photographic Society.

For more than forty-five years he photographed life in the streets around Bolton.            With his affectionate and understanding eye, he photographed his own community being themselves.  A climber and a cyclist, Geoff also made photographs of rural and urban landscape.

Always articulate, Geoff had strong views about creativity and expressing one’s own vision.

‘I once accused a camera club judge of perpetuating mediocrity.  I don’t think he knew what I was talking about.’

Geoff made photographs to please himself and if he pleased other people it was a bonus.

Two books of Geoff’s work can be bought on Blurb:
