Artist Bio

Homer Warwick Sykes (born 1949) is a Canadian-born British photographer. Sykes's father, Homer Warwick Sykes, was a Canadian-born American of English extraction who worked for the China National Aviation Corporation in Shanghai. And his mother, Helen Grimmitt, was Canadian born and raised in Hong Kong. The pair were married in August 1947, but in June 1948, in an early stage of his wife's pregnancy, Homer was killed in an accident at Lunghua airfield. After that, Helen returned to her family home in Vancouver, and the son was born three weeks later. When the boy's mother remarried in 1954, the family moved to England. Sykes was a keen photographer as a teenager, with a darkroom both at home and at boarding school. After that, in 1968 he started a three-year course at the London College of Printing, while sharing a house in St John's Wood. In the summer vacation during his first year, he went to New York. And was impressed by the work of current photographers - Cartier-Bresson, Davidson, Friedlander, Frank, Uzzle and Winogrand - that he saw at the Museum of Modern Art.
