Research Point

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.

Find three images from each of the photographers mentioned above. Carefully analyse at least one image by each photographer. What makes the image work – or not? What is the image saying about the subject? Compare and contrast the different portrait styles of the various photographers.
