Holden Luntz Gallery presents a selection of works by the British photographer Brian Duffy.
Duffy was born in 1933 and began to freelance in the art department for Harper’s Bazaar in 1955 – where he became interested in photography. He moved to British Vogue in 1957 and along with David Bailey and Terrance Donovan they were the three key creative forces in photography that defined the “Swinging Sixties” with its emphasis on youth, spontaneous energy, and liberating ideas. Duffy was versatile and expanded conventional photography – shooting two Pirelli Calendars creating fashion and celebrity images that were bold, unpredictable, and dynamic. His photographic career only lasted until 1980 – when he suddenly ended his production and burned a large amount of his negatives. He became a craftsman by 1990 – becoming an expert in furniture restoration and died in 2010.
