Brian Duffy defined the image of the 1960s, and was as famous as the stars he photographed. Together with David Bailey and Terence Donovan, Duffy is recognised as one of the innovators of “documentary” fashion photography, a style which revolutionised fashion imagery and furthermore the fashion industry.
Duffy’s most famous photograph dates from January 1973 and is the iconic cover of David Bowie’s album Aladdin Sane. They collaborated on four other sessions during the pivotal years of Bowie’s career between 1972 and 1980, and Duffy’s photographs would appear on the cover of two more David Bowie albums – Lodger, and their final collaboration, Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps). When the king of glam was assuming and discarding extraordinary personas, Duffy was capturing them all.
I hope you enjoy this phenomenal body of work. Duffy passed away in 2010 but collectors can still purchase signed examples of his work, alongside unsigned estate-authorised pieces, all carefully curated by his son Chris. Photographs are available to purchase in limited editions in a range of physical size options to suit your wall space, including some very large format versions with a 40×40 inch image size.
