Noel Chanan (b 1939)

Biography of Noel Chanan (b 1939)

Noel Chanan is a photographer and film-maker, who was born 1939.

Through the 1990s, Noel Chanan spent some weeks each year travelling India, creating two folios of photographs. The first was in conventional 35mm format, while the second was shot on a Russian Horizon 202 panoramic camera. Its wide-angle, motor-driven lens, rotating through an angle of approximately 100 degrees on exposure, produces a unique perspective.

In 2000, the two folios, comprising 120 images, formed the inaugural exhibition at Bristol’s British Empire & Commonwealth Museum. Subsequent venues included the Royal Albert Museum, Exeter, Exeter University and the Julia Margaret Cameron Museum on the Isle of Wight.
