Benson & Hedges – Matchbox – 1977

This shot was one of the ground breaking award winning Benson & Hedges campaign for the agency Collett Dickenson & Pearce in 1977 with art director Alan Waldie. New laws had restricted the use of conventional images of people smoking cigarettes and they decided to play with scale and dimension to create a surreal illusion. This initial series of photographs consolidated the concept which other photographers were to follow and Duffy is recognised as one of the top 100 most influential photographers of all time. As time went on Duffy became anti-smoking and withdrew from cigarette advertising.
