Three photographers defined the Swinging Sixties – David Bailey, Terence Donovan and Duffy, the swaggering enfants terribles who created an aesthetic which defined many generations to come. Famed for his celebrity portraits, Duffy was as much a star as those who sat (or stood/leaned/mugged) for him but the show opening at Proud Chelsea tonight also features a fascinating selection of his editorial work. Duffy tried to burn all his negatives after a tough day in the studio in 1979, and this exhibition features a snapshot of those which were fortunately saved.
The show runs until May 13th.
