Adrian Flowers, whose masterful advertising campaigns and editorial portraits helped define the spirit of the Swinging 60s, died last week in Agen, France. Mr. Flowers, born in 1926 in Portsmouth, England, was a huge name in the London photography scene back in the 1950s through the early 90’s with his iconic images of Peter Sellers, Paul and Linda McCartney, Sir Alec Guinness, Michael Caine, Vanessa Redgrave, Twiggy and countless other luminaries.

West & Sons.
