That Swing

Jean Shrimpton, early '60s, by photographer Brian Duffy

Brian Duffy, who along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan helped define the look of London in the 1960s, has died at the age of 76. Here's a small selection of his iconic images.

John Lennon

Grace Coddington, 1960

William S. Burroughs, 1960

Fashion photo for Queen Magazine, 1965

Nina Simone with her daughter Simone, 1965

"How to undress in front of your husband" series with Amanda Lear and a Panton chair

David Bowie as Aladdin Sane, 1973

The Year In Pictures has a nice remembrance of Brian Duffy and I'm sure many more are to follow.
