We heard with regret and sadness of the death of LIP member Gordon Raisin on 11th October 2010. Gordon died peacefully after a lengthy illness suffering from Parkinson’s Disease. He remained a member of LIP in spite of prolonged hospitalisation and his forced inability to practise the black and white photography he loved.

Gordon was a long time member of LIP and all who met him were struck by his kind and gentlemanly manner. In the early years he was a very frequent participant at our workshops and other events and contributed from time to time to our magazine.

Here is an article Gordon contributed to the Journal of London Independent Photography, Autumn 2002 issue, beginning on page 16:
