Checkout this awesome interview from Albion Cycling!
Gerry Cranham didn’t take his first picture until he was 28. Born in 1929, Cranham worked as an apprentice in the aircraft industry during the war, and joined up himself soon after when a recession kicked in and jobs were scarce. He would spend the next five years working as a draughtsman, creating finely worked engineering drawings. “When I was boy I wanted to go to art school, but my parents couldn’t afford it. But I was always interested, and I used to go to the art school at Reading University in the evenings when I was an apprentice, and I picked up things there.”
Hopefully you remember Gerry Cranham from this Tom Simpson article in ProCycling!
