Graham Saxby

Graham Saxby died aged 89. He was one of the great educators whose ‘Practical Holography’ which was first published in 1988 will remain the standard work on the subject for years.

He produced journalism on a wide range of topics and his publications include The Focal Guide to Slides and The Science of Imaging.

Graham joined the RAF as a photographer in 1946, starting as an AC2, raising to Chief Tech and then commissioned into the Education Branch, he served for 19 years. He will be remembered by many as an instructor at RAF Cosford.

In 1998 Graham endowed the Royal Photographic Society Saxby Award for achievement in the field of three-dimensional imaging, in appreciation of the benefits of 50 years membership of The Society.
