Duffy - Legendary British photographer
Brian Duffy, known professionally as 'Duffy' 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.
An incredible never-before-seen visual record to the photographic genius that was Brian Duffy, featuring Duffy’s own words and an introduction by Philippe Garner is available from all good bookstores and Amazon from mid-June, published by the ACC Publishing Group (RRP £45.00).
A limited edition containing a rare print from the David Bowie Aladdin Sane cover shoot is priced at £250.00

We're proud to present the first ever full retrospective of Brian Duffy - a man who changed the face of British photography.
The first ever full-career retrospective of the legendary British photographer opens to the public on July 8th 2011, coinciding with the publication of Duffy – the first and only book of the photographer's work.
Duffy infamously quit photography in 1979 when, at the height of his career, he took the majority of his photographic work into the back garden and set it on fire. Featuring more than 160 images painstakingly rediscovered by Duffy’s son after years of searching through archives and publications around the world, this exhibition has truly risen from the ashes.
