An interview with Denis Thorpe

It’s 70 years since the great photojournalist Denis Thorpe started working in newspapers. He celebrates this anniversary with a new exhibition and book, both called A View from the North. Redeye’s Paul Herrmann talked to him about his career.

“It was fantastic to have started with this small camera and with it actually get that moment in time. The thrill, the satisfaction, to be able to capture atmosphere and emotion even in dreary half-light…” - Denis Thorpe
