Eamonn McCabe

Eamonn McCabe, one of the most celebrated and admired newspaper photographers and picture editors of his generation, has died aged 74.

Everyone at the FPA sends their thoughts to the McCabe family.

Eamonn worked on The Observer newspaper from 1976-1988, before becoming picture editor of The Guardian and was hugely respected and valued by his fellow professionals.


The Guardian has also published a “life in pictures” tribute, with FPA member and award-winning photographer Tom Jenkins remembering the wonderful man.


Eammon’s work has appeared in many books, this is one of our favourites: https://www.amazon.co.uk/EAMONN-McCABE-Photographer-Nicholson-Geoffrey/dp/B001GDLC8Y/

He also hosted a photography television programme on BBC4 about the history of British photography

He will be sorely missed. Already the tributes
