Chris Duffy: 80's Retrospective.
Chris Duffy was âborn with a camera in his hand', the son of legendary 60's photographer Brian Duffy, Chris grew up with the godfathers of fashion photography David Bailey and Terence Donovan. It was inevitable that photography would play a huge part in his life, and as soon as he was old enough he started working as 3rd assistant in his father's studio (making coffee, sweeping floors and being available 24/7), as time went by he graduated to become Duffy's right hand man, giving him an extraordinary apprenticeship.
During the 80's Chris ran his own successful studio in London working on a wide variety of commissions from the music business (Adam Ant, Steve Strange, Sade, David Bowie), celebrity portraits (Jimmy Nail, Terence Stamp, Rachel Weisz), to fashion and beauty national magazines, the Sunday glossies, advertising and PR clients.
Chris started to collate material for exhibition and soon realized that his back catalogue had not been seen since it was shot in the 80's and decided to present a snapshot of this era. It is interesting to see this particular time frame of a period which was so innovative, in its outlook, with a backglance at the fashions and what was "hot" creating a rarely seen retrospective of the 80's.
