    I had heard NOTHING about his passing. And generally people will let me know because they know I'm 'Into Photography'. His Handbook was one of the first photographic books I ever owned.
    Thank you.

    That makes me so sad.
    I grew up reading his books.
    And shared them with so many friends.
    That was my first photography book also.

    I too learned the essentials from his books- sorry to hear of his passing.

    I'm amazed over the sheer amount of books/editions he got published. He is singular on that.

    Actually back then I did not read his books. They were somewhat expensive and finally I got all the information from other sources.

    I'm not really sure whether I have got any of his books in my private library, but these days I bought a few 2nd hand just for analogue newcomers, as the "analogue" editions will be hard to find in public libraries.
    "The Book of Photography" from 1976 for example has aside of illustrated articles on subjets of photography a rather comprehensive part on apparatus.

    I spent two days with John back in the early 80's, in fact I'm in his Advanced Photography book, he did a two page spread on my work

    There may be reasons why no-one mentioned it. He taught at Birmingham School of Photography with John Langford before going to the RCA, and I know people he taught.

    When starting in black & white darkroom work I was advised that 'Basic Photography' was too basic for my own needs and missed out on 'Advanced Photography', although I've seen the book in the library.

    Langford's two academic books are well worth buying, even Basic photography

    It's not too basic, and it's extremely well written. You'd find it useful.
