It is with great sadness that the Society has been informed of the death of Life Member Ted Baker FRPS following a long illness and a period in hospital.Ted was one of our longest serving members and a former President. He will be remembered for his documentary monochrome images of Liverpool 8 from the sixties which were exhibited in Liverpool and widely acclaimed.In addition with his love of Jazz Music Ted embarked on a project to photograph many famous jazz musicians while performing in jazz clubs. This produced a body of work which would form part of his Fellowship submission. Although initially his first submission was declined however subsequently his next submission was rightly awarded a Fellowship of the RPS. It should be noted that all of Ted’s work was darkroom based and he was a master of his craft.Ted will be sadly missed by the Society and especially those members who knew Ted over many years. Ted Baker FRPS RIP.The funeral will take place at 1 pm on Thursday 19th Oct in the Rosemary Chapel of Springwood Crematorium.
Friends are also welcome to join the family afterwards in the Rose of Mossley Pub.
