Behind the Lens: George Plemper


When George Plemper was a teacher at Thamesmead School in South London, he began photographing his students. These children had been written off by many as ‘problem kids’, but through photography, George found a way to instil them with confidence and help others see them in the same positive light he did.

 After leaving teaching, George took these images to Ed Barber and Mike Goldwater, and they became the basis for the Half Moon Photography Touring Show ‘Lost at School’. Forty years later, George talks to us about this project.
