A freelance photographer since 1968, John Walmsley
worked as a part-time lecturer at the
Architectural Association School of Architecture in London
from 1973 to 1979. The photographer works
"in the reportage tradition," mainly capturing images of people,
which are used largely by educational book publishers
in Great Britain and the U.S..
Café Royal Books (founded 2005) is an independent
publisher based in Southport, England.
Originally set up as a way to disseminate art,
in multiple, affordably, quickly, and internationally
while not relying on 'the gallery'.
Café Royal Books publishes artist's books and zines
as well as a weekly series of photobook/zines.
The photographic publications are part of a long
ongoing series, generally working with photographers
and their archives, to publish work, which usually falls
into 1970–2000 UK documentary / reportage.
