NOTORIOUS: Duffy's celebrity portraits

27 March 2012 to 3 June 2012

FINAL DAYS! The English photographer Brian Duffy helped to define the visual style of Britain in the '60s and '70s. Alongside Terrence Donovan and David Bailey, Duffy rewrote the rule book on fashion photography. Leaving behind the formal conservatism of the 1950s, Duffy introduced a new style of documentary fashion photography, one perfectly suited to the cool, sophisticated place that was Britain in the 1960s and ‘70s.

This exhibition, drawing on work from the Duffy Archive in Britain, presents a selection of Duffy's portraits. He photographed many of popular culture's coolest people, including Jean Shrimpton, David Bowie, The Beatles, Terrence Stamp and the world's greatest actor, Michael Caine.
