Eileen Ramsay: Queen of yachting photography
The “Queen of British yachting photography” as stated by her biographer has sadly passed away aged 101.
A very talented photographer using less than capable technology, she produced some superb images which are still used to this day. One of Eileen’s first pictures to be published was of a scene on the not so far away Menai Straits taken in 1945 when holidaying with friends in Anglesey. The picture titled ‘Black Sails’ was selected for the 50th edition of Photograms of the Year, an annual review of the world’s best photographic art.
