He subsequently worked on photopolymer materials for Ilford, which became the subject for an MPhil at Wolverhampton Polytechnic. Since ’91 he has been involved in ‘blue sky’ research at the Institute of Biotechnology in Cambridge, UK. Jeff is the recipient of the Royal Photographic Society’s Saxby award for 2003
