"This collection of memorable black and white photographs charts the capital at its coolest" - The London Magazine - July 2011
Originally released in 2011 the long overdue first monograph of iconic photographer Brian Duffy received critical acclaim. Documenting a vast body of work from 1957 surrealism to 1980 album covers.
When the photographer Brian Duffy Died in May 2010, he was widely acclaimed as a driving force behind the English avant-garde of young photographers who defined the visual style of the Swinging Sixties. in 1980 Duffy felt that he had said all he needed to say in photography and, in a moment of madness, decided to burn all of his work. Fortunately, he was stopped before everything was destroyed. This first publication of Duffy's work presents a wealth of imagery from the genius that was Duffy.
"Thankfully, those works that survived now live on as a comprehensive cultural history of an emphatically progressive era" - The Independent on Sunday - June 2011
