John Andrew Hughes
In 1974 the streets of London were a wonderful training ground for a young photographer and ‘Fleet Street’ was the center of the universe. The major newspapers of the day were centralized on this street or within easy walking distance, running, if you had a scoop. Early risers could witness the delivery of huge rolls of paper. Only two or three able to fit on a flatbed truck. The sunrise hustle, the smells, the early morning coffee shop and maybe a sausage roll or bacon sandwich to start the day. Shafts of morning light would penetrate from each side-street until it finally rounded the corners as the day progressed. Camera in hand and pockets filled with Kodak Tri-X film. John Andrew Hughes would accompany his mentor Charles R. Cramp on the days adventures. Those days. Slow and frustrating, crazy and fast, and on at least one occasion, that excited telephone call from a callbox to the Daily Mail picture editor, “Hold the front page”.
