(Curatorial caption, accessed 23 November 2014)
Here we see three of the best known British photographers of the twentieth century. Bailey (1938) and Donovan (1936 1996) are two of the photographers known for capturing London in the 1960s; photographing the life of celebrity and high fashion. The third, Lichfield (1939 2005), is perhaps best known for taking the official photographs at the wedding of the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1981. All three emerged as photographers at a time when celebrity culture was at its height and became celebrities themselves. This photograph was taken for an Olympus advert.
