Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long. -- Walker Evans

DUFFY: The Man Who Shot the Sixties

Brian Duffy was one of the greatest British fashion photographers from the late fifties to the late seventies, when he grew disenchanted with it, burned most of his negatives and gave up photography altogether, turning instead to shooting commercials. He died in 2010. 

In 2009, a retrospective exhibition was held at Chris Beetles Gallery in London (a few photos from the exhibition are on
The Guardian website).

Duffy Photographer website is devoted to his work and an excellent BBC documentary was made about his career, called DUFFY: the Man Who Shot the Sixties, which is well worth watching.
