Spender, Humphrey (English photographer, painter, and textile designer, 1910-2005)

Note: Spender operated a portrait and commercial photography studio in London from 1934 to 1939, with Bill Edmiston. From 1936 to 1938, he was the staff photographer for the Daily Mirror, and from 1937 to 1938, he was the photographer for the Mass Observation Project, which was implemented to document day-to-day English life. The project focused on the industrial town of Bolton, where Spender photographed the factories and the residents of the town. From 1938 to 1941 and 1946 to 1949, Spender was a staff photographer for Picture Post magazine. From ca. 1941 to ca. 1945, Spender acted as the official photographer for the British War Office, London. Spender abandoned photography in 1949 to concentrate on painting and textile design.
