Spirit of the ’60s

Today it came out, that photography Brian Duffy has died. Duffy is a photographer known for his rather iconic portraits of, well, iconic celebrities during the 1960s and 1970s. His work, along with Bailey and Donovan, defined that era beautifully.

I picture him, in a studio, standing in his flared cords, shouting instructions at Bowie in front of the camera. The spirit of London in the ’60s. His celebrity photography along with his fashion photography, are what I think of, when imagining the 1960s.

In 1979, Duffy became sick of photography, and burnt all the negatives of his images. But the ones that remain, will always be remembered.

Here’s a few of his work over the years:

Sammy Davis Jnr, & May Britt

John Lennon

Westminster Bridge, 1961

Reggie Kray and Grandad

Harold Wilson

The ’60s fashion

David Bowie

Love, in the ’60s

Brian Duffy, 1933 – 2010
