    DescriptionIn the early sixties, a triumvirate of young working-class photographers burst onto the scene and turned the fashion world on its head - David Bailey, Brian Duffy and Terence Donovan ushered in the era of the photographer as cultural hero and, as the son of an East-End truck driver, Donovan in particular personified what the popular imagination believed to be the essence of the 'swinging sixties' in London. Although often pigeon-holed as a fashion photographer, his magazine work actually formed just a fraction of his prolific output. When he died in 1996, after a career spanning forty years, he left an archive of nearly a million exposures which included his portraits, advertising commissions and documentary work. This new, stunning retrospective of his best-known images (and some previously unpublished) has been compiled with the support of Terence's wife and promises to be an important contribution to photographic and social history publishing.

    Review text
    In the early 1960s, three brash Cockney photographers arrived on the scene: Terence Donovan, David Bailey and Brian Duffy. Donovan was the eldest of them, and shook up the media establishment with his lively fashion pictures for magazines like Town and Queen. London gave him his backdrop: his use of the bombed dereliction and industrial wasteland of the East End as set was to become a vital part of modern fashion iconography. He died in 1996, leaving nearly a million eclectic images from four decades. The best, from Jan Williams in 1960 to Yasser Arafat in 1996, are collected here. (Kirkus UK)
