David Bailey wasn’t the only portrait photographer around in the swinging sixties. Some other names were just as big – Terence Donovan, Brian Duffy, Norman Parkinson, Angus McBean – and slightly older photographers like John French and Cecil Beaton. There were also new photographers on the block as well, for example Richard Avedon.
