Calendar is published in memory of photographer

THE family of a photographer have published some of his work to help keep his memory alive.

IN MEMORY: Angie Anthonisz who has printed a calendar as a tribute to her father, David Jupp, who was a photographer

David Jupp died in 2003 aged 58 following a battle with leukaemia.

The photographer, who was born in Egremont, spent eight months recovering from his cancer treatment in Millom.

His daughter Angie Anthonisz, who runs the High Cross Inn in Broughton, has created a calendar in tribute to late father.

She said: “We always wanted to do something because he took thousands of photos.

“Following treatment in Whitehaven he spent his recovery in Millom and, to keep himself occupied, he drove around the area taking lots of photos.”

Mr Jupp worked in Dubai from 1978 where he was employed as photographer for engineering firm Al Nadboodah.

He then worked as a freelance landscape photographer with his work appearing in the Explorer Publishing series of books about Dubai.

In his youth Mr Jupp played with Procol Harem before they recorded the smash hit Whiter Shade of Pale.

Mr Jupp was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2001 and now 10 years on Mrs Anthonisz has put together the calendars to ensure her father’s work lives on.

Popular landmarks stretching from Black Combe to Foxfield are included.

She said: “He really did love photography and he’d take a picture of almost anything he thought was different.

“We’ve ended up with quite a catalogue of images stretching from Barrow to Egremont.

“He loved the Lakes and always intended to come back.” Mrs Anthonisz said she and husband Michael have considered producing a book of her late father’s pictures but after much deliberation they produced a small run of calendars to gauge interest.

She said if the calendars were successful, next year they would look to donate a percentage of revenue to leukaemia charities.

This year’s calendar focuses on the Duddon Valley.

Mrs Anthonisz said the idea behind the calendar was to share her late father’s work and to keep his memory alive.

The calendar is available from the High Cross Inn, Millom Network Centre and Broughton Information Centre.

Have your say

The High Cross Inn was a place that often attracted me. But the last people to be landlords that I know were the Grices. The Grice family were sheep farmers and had a great presence in Bootle. What a surprise it was for me to find a dedication to a Richard Grice and his wife on the walls of St Pauls Cathedral here in Melbourne. Yes, he was related.
Good luck to the High Cross. I hope that it does not go the way of many of the pubs in Millom that have disappeared in the past few years.
