From Twiggy in the Swinging Sixties to Princess Diana in the 1980s: three decades of legendary British fashion photographer Terence Donovan This is the first book dedicated to the portraiture of legendary photographer Terence Donovan, a genre that spanned the entirety of his four-decade career. During this time he worked for major British and international magazines including Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaarand Elle. Donovan undertook numerous private portrait commissions, photographing public figures from the worlds of the arts, politics and business, in addition to members of the British Royal family; his many sitters include Yasser Arafat, Naomi Campbell, Sean Connery, Diana Princess of Wales, Laurence Olivier and Charlotte Rampling. Along with his iconic portraits, this book features unseen work from Donovan's archive, never previously published or exhibited. It also reproduces magazine spreads, contact sheets and pages from diaries and daybooks--rare ephemera that provide a unique insight into Donovan's working practice. Terence Daniel Donovan(1936-96) was born in the East End of London and took his first photo at the age of 15. The bomb-damaged industrial landscape of his hometown became the backdrop of much of his fashion photography, and he set the trend for positioning fashion models in stark and gritty urban environments. Along with David Bailey and Brian Duffy, he captured, and in many ways helped create, the Swinging London of the 1960s. Donovan's passion for photography remained constant throughout his long career. In 1963 he told a young Jean Shrimpton that "photography fascinates me. Instant fascination every time. When the fascination leaves me, I'll give it up." As it never did, neither did he.

'Flawless' — New York Journal of Books 'Superb' — Observer 'Stylish' — Sunday Telegraph, 'Favourite Books of the Year' 'The story of fashion photography in the UK' — Herald Terence Donovan was one of the foremost photographers of his generation – among the greatest Britain has ever produced. He came to prominence in London as part of a postwar renaissance in art, fashion, graphic design and photography. His working-class background and outlook helped change the face of British fashion photography and made him a major figure of London's Swinging Sixties. A star in his own right, he was equally at home with celebrities and royalty as well as the ordinary girl on the street, whose mannerisms informed his photographs. Gifted with an unerring eye for the iconic image, Donovan was also master of his craft, a technical genius who strove to push the limits of what was possible. And yet despite his fame and status, there has never been a publication devoted solely to his fashion work. Terence Donovan Fashion is the first time his fashion pictures have been collected together in book form. Arranged chronologically, from the gritty monochromatic 1960s and 1970s to the vibrant and colourful 1980s and 1990s, the book reveals how constant invention and experimentation set Donovan apart from his contemporaries and influenced generations to come. The pictures have been selected by his wife Diana Donovan and the former art director of Nova magazine and Pentagram partner David Hillman, who worked closely with Donovan for over a decade. With a text by the photographic historian Robin Muir, and a foreword by Grace Coddington, creative director of American Vogue, Terence Donovan Fashion is a landmark in the history of fashion photography.

In 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.

With increasingly accessible camera technology, crowd sourced public media projects abound like never before. Such projects often seek to secure a snapshot of a single day in order to establish communities and create visual time capsules for the future. Mass Photography: Collective Histories of Everyday Life assesses the potential of these popular moment-in-time projects by examining their current day prevalence and their historical predecessors. Through archival research and interviews with organisers and participants, it examines, for the first time, the vast photographic collections resulting from such projects, analysing their structures and systems, their aims and objectives, and their claims and promises. The central focus is the 55,000 photographs submitted to One Day for Life in 1987, which aimed, in its own time, to be 'the biggest photographic event the world had ever seen'. Through its case studies, Mass Photography examines the particular cultural role that amateur photography offers, demonstrating how it has come to be embraced as a privileged authentic form, capable of communicating identity, capturing history and touching places that other images cannot reach. In revealing previously uncharted histories of participatory media and user-generated content, this work challenges claims made of the networked digital photograph's seemingly new and unique capacity. As the first book to examine these ambitious and participatory photographic phenomena, Mass Photography makes a valuable contribution to photographic history and theory by taking a fresh look at amateur practice on an unprecedented scale.
