Although Duffy claimed he only ever took photographs for money he was almost always armed with a Canon Dial half-frame camera. The unique windup camera took 35mm film but shot 72 images instead of the normal 36 exposures. The negatives came out half the size but still gave amazing results with a look all of its own. Duffy's reportage images shot with this camera are often on the move and offer great insight into the time.
This image was taken during a French Elle photoshoot for Tweed fashions. The feature was released on the 14th of October 1974. This was Duffy's first feature for the magazine in 8 years and marked the beginning of his second era of providing fashion shoots for the magazine. More images from the session can be seen here.
