Brian Duffy (15 June 1933 – 31 May 2010) was a celebrated English photographer and film producer, best remembered for his fashion photography of the 1960s and 1970s and his creation of the iconic “Aladdin Sane” image for David Bowie.

[…] Along with fellow photographers David Bailey and Terence Donovan, he captured, and in many ways helped to create, the “Swinging London” of the 1960s: a culture of high fashion and celebrity chic. Together the “Terrible Three”, as they came to be known by the British press, redefined not only the aesthetic of fashion photography but also the place of the photographer within the industry. Socialising with actors, musicians and royalty, together they represented a new breed of photographer and found themselves elevated to celebrity status. Wikipedia

Strange Random Brian Duffy Quote:

Before 1960, a fashion photographer was tall, thin and camp. But we three are different: short, fat and heterosexual! (On the “Terrible Three”).
