Roger Bamber: Out of the Ordinary
Jermaine Briffa was just four when he provided a small but enthusiastic audience as the Brighton Punch and Judy man set up, ready for the school holidays. The child was so engrossed in his one-to-one conversation with Mr Punch, he ignored Roger Bamber bearing down on him with an 18mm lens.The picture was used by the Guardian to mark the start of the summer holiday season in 1992 and went on to win several awards. It was part of Bamber's portfolio when he won Ilford Press Photographer of the Year for 1992 and was used for the Ilford poster campaign "That's The Way To Do It!" Ten years later, Jermaine's mother wrote to the Guardian to say that the picture had come to mean something very special to her. She said: "Shortly after the picture was taken Jermaine was taken ill with encephalitis. He was in hospital for a further three weeks whilst he re-learnt how to eat,drink,talk and walk. The following seven years have been a constant battle for Jermaine against severe migraine attacks and epilepsy but throughout all if this he has always tried his best. He is now 12 years old getting on 20!I am writing as a very proud mother; proud that my son has coped so well with his illness and proud that he is in such an emotional photograph.

This major exhibition celebrates the life and work of popular Brighton based photographer Roger Bamber (1944–2022).

Bamber’s distinctive eye created engaging and striking images that capture an ordinary moment in an extraordinary way. In a career that included work as a press photographer for the Daily Mail, The Sun, The Observer and The Guardian, Roger captured a rapidly changing world with insight, humour and an unerring eye for a good image. He lived in Brighton, and the city and its people feature in many photographs including iconic images of the seafront, the Royal Pavilion and the dramatic Victorian sewers.
