The photographer Fay Godwin, who died in May 2005 and whose obituary was published in The Guardian on the 31st  of May of that year,  is probably best  known for her pictures of the British landscape, but her photos of literary figures such  Clive James, Ted Hughes and Philip Larkin show that she was capable of producing amazingly subtle portraits with her camera.
