Desmond Paul Henry (1921–2004) was a Manchester University Lecturer and Reader in Philosophy (1949–82). And what did he have to do with art? He was one of the first in Britain to experiment with machine-generated visual effects in the 1960s. The Hero image shows him with one of his machines. And here is one of his early images titled Assassination.
It seems the relationship started when Henry won a local competition in 1961 (called London Opportunity) at the Salford Art Gallery which is now part of Greater Manchester. The images Henry submitted weren't machine drawn being described as small imaginative works in coloured ink.The prize was a one-man exhibition in London at the Reid Gallery and both Lowry and Mr. Reid encouraged Henry to include his machine-generated images in this one-man show.
