Duffy The Lost Portraits,


Proud Chelsea is delighted to present Duffy: The Lost Portraits, an exclusive collection of rare, signed prints from sixties music and fashion photographer, Brian Duffy. Taken from a limited archive after the late photographer attempted to burn most of his negatives in 1979, this exhibition boasts some of Duffy’s most iconic remaining fashion and celebrity portraits.

Nicknamed the “Terrible Trio” by newspapers, and the “Black
Trinity” by Norman Parkinson,
Duffy revolutionised British fashion
photography in the 1960s along with David Bailey and Terence
Donovan. Unlike many photographers, these controversial artists took their models on to the streets and snapped them with newfangled, small 35mm cameras. Duffy started his photographic career freelancing for Harpers Bazaar in the mid 1950s and in 1957 he was hired by Vogue, where he remained until 1963 shooting models like Jean Shrimpton.
Duffy: The Lost Portraits exhibits a range of this striking and innovative fashion photography alongside renowned portraits of John Lennon, Michael Caine and David Bowie (in particular the famous Aladdin Sane album cover, shot in 1973).
