Eamonn McCabe

Photographer and picture editor Eamonn McCabe passed away last week. He was friends with Searle and photographed him around the time of his 90th birthday. The pictures were also published not long after with Searle's obituary.

 “It’s brilliant, but I do worry that the ease of working with digital means that you tend to just keep shooting away for the sake of it. Too easy isn’t always good for photographers. I’m great friends with the cartoonist Ronald Searle, who’s now in his nineties. He told me that when things get too comfortable, too easy, he’ll put a sticking plaster or something on his little finger – almost like a means of giving himself a kind of deliberate handicap.”

McCabe's book on Artists and their studios has page on Searle
