The Man Who Shot the 60s
The late Brian Duffy, one of the photographers whose work defined the 1960s, talks about his life, his work and why he disappeared from view and burned his negatives in the 70s.
A tribute to Brian Duffy, who passed away in May 2010. Duffy was one of the greatest photographers of his generation. Along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan he defined the image of the 1960s and was as famous as the stars he photographed. In the 1970s he suddenly disappeared from view and burned all his negatives. Filmed on the eve of the first-ever exhibition of his work, Duffy agrees to talk about his life, his work and why he made it all go up in flames.
