The Man Who Shot the 60s

brain_duffy_LTGreat documentary on BBC iplayer- about 60s photographer Brian Duffy and to a lesser extent his contemporaries Terrence Donovan and David Bailey. As far as I can tell these guys pretty much paved the way for modern photography and kicked against the staid, formal styles which had come before. Really stirring stuff and the film gives a real insight into the brash, refreshing attitudes which created such iconic, beautiful, and influential work.

Check it out on iplayer (quick only a few days left!) and click here for a good article on Times Online about ‘The Terrible Three’.
