SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND // Terence Donovan: Speed of Light


The Photographers' Gallery | London | W1F 7LW | 15 July - 25 September



Dressed Overall - Fashion Feature for Nova - March 1974

Terence Donovan. One of the most intriguing photographers of his generation. Critically acclaimed for his fashion photography, the East Londoner counts David Bailey as one of his peers, and rose to fame in 1960's London. Known for pushing the boundaries, his work celebrates a new awakening in art, fashion and photography.

Virginia Wynn-Thomas - London, August 1959

'Young Idea' - Jill Kennington for British Vogue, 1963

The Photographers' Gallery presents Donovan's first
major retrospective, providing an insight into Donovan's
demonstration of cultural contrast - a contrast he aptly
names 'working-class chic' vs 'overdone glamour.'
From fashion to portrait shots, the exhibition explores
Donovan's most iconic moments from unreleased sketches
and diary excerpts, to editorials and some of his most
celebrated works.
