Terence Donovan Archive
1st September - 29th September 2010
The son of a Stepney lorry driver, Terence Donovan (1936-96) personified what popular imagination held to be the essence of the ‘Swinging Sixties’. His photography, iconoclastic and irreverent, brought to magazines and advertising a new visual language of gesture and stance, a ‘working class chic’ with its roots firmly in the world he knew best – the streets of London’s east end.
Forming part of what Norman Parkinson referred to as the Black Trinity along with David Bailey and Brian Duffy, Donovan remained at the forefront of photography for 40 years leaving behind hundreds of thousands of negatives and some of the most iconic images of British photography. On display will be a varied collection of reportage, portraiture and fashion photography including portraits of Julie Christie and Tony Hancock.
Monday – Friday. 9.30 – 16.30
