Terence Donovan Fashion

Published by Art / Books
Edited by Diana Donovan, David Hillman. Preface by Grace Coddington. Text by Robin Muir.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Terence Donovan Fashion</I>.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, and--alongside David Bailey and Brian Duffy (photographers of a similar working-class background)--he captured and helped create the Swinging London of the 1960s. Donovan socialized with celebrities and royalty, and found himself elevated to stardom in his own right, and yet, despite his success and status, there has never been a serious evaluation of Donovan’s fashion work: he allowed no monographs to be published during his lifetime. Terence Donovan Fashion is therefore the first publication of his fashion photographs. Arranged chronologically, and with an illuminating text by Robin Muir (ex-picture editor of Vogue), the book considers Donovan in the social and cultural context of his time, showing how his constant experimentation not only set him apart, but also influenced generations to come. Designed by former art director of Nova magazine and Pentagram partner David Hillman, and with images selected by Hillman, the artist’s widow Diana Donovan and Grace Coddington, creative director of American Vogue, this volume is indisputably a landmark publication in the history of fashion photography.
Terence Donovan (1936–1996) is regarded as one of the foremost photographers of his generation. From the beginning of the 1960s until his death more than 30 years later, he shot regularly for magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. He also directed some 3,000 commercials, the 1973 movie Yellow Dog and numerous music videos, for Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” and “Simply Irresistible” among others.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

TIME Magazine

Feifei Sun

Though he snapped some of the style industry's most famous faces, among them Cindy Crawford, Twiggy and a young Grace Coddington, there has never been a tome solely dedicated to Terence Donovan's fashion photography. That changes this month with a new publication from Art / Books, aptly titled Terence Donovan Fashion. The nearly 200 images are arranged chronologically, showcasing the British lensman's black-and-white work from the 1960s, where he was as much a celebrity as the people he photographed as part of the Swinging London scene, to his color photographs during the exuberant fashion world of the 1980s and 1990

The New York Times

Whitney Richardson

Mr. Donovan... was at the forefront of capturing evolving trends, working with top fashion publications like Elle, British Vogue and the Sunday Times Magazine. Inspired by his own modest upbringing in East London, he photographed his models as friends and experimented with shooting outside the studio, using the bustling streets as his background.

'Terence Donovan Fashion' Slideshow Featured on The New York Times Lens Blog

'Terence Donovan Fashion' Slideshow Featured on The New York Times Lens BlogIn Art / Books illuminating new monograph on the late, great, British fashion photographer Terence Donovan (who never allowed a book of his photographs to be published in his lifetime), the artist is quoted, "Photography is an elusive craft. I don’t consider it art because it is very specific and finite – not like painting, which evokes emotion beyond what you see. Nevertheless, it is a very difficult thing to make work. It is a curious combination of precision and chaos. A photographer must have a grasp of a complex cockpit drill in order to overpower the technical density which is very evident the more you understand photography." Featured image, of model Hiroko Matsumoto posing for "Ces Collections romantiques Pierre Cardin" in the March 3, 1966, edition of French Elle, is reproduced from Terence Donovan Fashion.
