Biography John Sabry
John Sabry was born and raised in Kyrenia, Cyprus. A painter from an early age, he also worked as a professional photographer and managed the Kodak shop in Nicosia during the 1950’s.
His photographs are evocative images from that era, taken on slide film. In 1965 three of his paintings were selected for the Royal Academy Summer show in London and in 1965 John Sabry won a National Geographic Photographic award "The world & it’s people".
John lived and worked as an artist in England, Lebanon and Italy. He remained a keen photographer and worked daily in his studio at Lemba near Paphos, until a few weeks before his death in 2006.
