From Twiggy in the Swinging Sixties to Princess Diana in the 1980s: three decades of legendary British fashion photographer Terence Donovan

This is the first book dedicated to the portraiture of legendary photographer Terence Donovan, a genre that spanned the entirety of his four-decade career. During this time he worked for major British and international magazines including Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle. Donovan undertook numerous private portrait commissions, photographing public figures from the worlds of the arts, politics and business, in addition to members of the British Royal family; his many sitters include Yasser Arafat, Naomi Campbell, Sean Connery, Diana Princess of Wales, Laurence Olivier and Charlotte Rampling.

Along with his iconic portraits, this book features unseen work from Donovan’s archive, never previously published or exhibited. It also reproduces magazine spreads, contact sheets and pages from diaries and daybooks--rare ephemera that provide a unique insight into Donovan’s working practice.

Terence Daniel Donovan (1936–96) was born in the East End of London and took his first photo at the age of 15. The bomb-damaged industrial landscape of his hometown became the backdrop of much of his fashion photography, and he set the trend for positioning fashion models in stark and gritty urban environments. Along with David Bailey and Brian Duffy, he captured, and in many ways helped create, the Swinging London of the 1960s. Donovan’s passion for photography remained constant throughout his long career. In 1963 he told a young Jean Shrimpton that “photography fascinates me. Instant fascination every time. When the fascination leaves me, I’ll give it up.” As it never did, neither did he.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

CNN Style

Jamie K White

The pages of "Terence Donovan: Portraits" cross industry and personality, much like the photographer himself, described by his wife as "enormously dynamic. Hugely amusing. Lovely to be with."

Arts Meme

Kirk Silsbee

Donovan’s acute eye, great instincts and improvisational impulses are all on abundant display.

Fashion Week Favorite: Terence Donovan: Portraits

Fashion Week Favorite: Terence Donovan: Portraits, Grace Coddington

In the May 10, 1964 issue of the London Sunday Times Colour Magazine, Francis Wyndham wrote, "The London idea of style in the 1960s has been adjusted to a certain way of looking, which is to some extent the creation of three young men, all from the East End." He was referring to photographers David Bailey, Brian Duffy and Terence Donovan, later dubbed "The Terrible Three" by none other than Cecil Beaton. Featured here is Donovan's January 1982 photograph of Grace Coddington for the Daily Mail, reproduced from Damiani's gorgeous new monograph collecting portraits from the 1950s through the 90s.
