Terence Donovan: Image Maker and Innovator, London

TerencestampTerence Donovan enjoyed a successful career as a photographer that spanned several decades and when he died in 1996 he left behind an archive of over a million photographs. But despite this he will always be best remembered for the work he did in the sixties, and forever linked with the notion of Swinging London.

The exhibition Terence Donovan: Image Maker and Innovator at the Chris Beetles Art Gallery in London will feature over 80 of his photographs, with his several of his most famous pictures nestling alongside less known work and some never before seen photographs.

There are plenty of shots of sixties celebrities in the exhibition, including the 1967 photograph of Terence Stamp (shown here) taken on the set of ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’ and the iconic Twiggy in front of a Union Jack as well as portraits of Sophia Loren, Kingsley Amis, Sean Connery and Marianne Faithful. Just as interesting though are his men’s fashion photography for ‘Man About Town’ and his photo essay ‘The Lay About Life’ s featuring images taken in Notting Hill.

If you are in London between 19 September and 13 October, you can see the exhibition at the Chris Beetles Gallery, but if not, you can view it online now on the gallery’s website.
