The Man Who Shot The Sixties

Ending our video-centric week of learning from great photographers, here's a neat film about photographer Brian Duffy. Duffy was an iconic London fashion photographer from the 1960s. At the time, he was a downright superstar. Then one day he decided to up and quit, going so far as to burn all of his negatives. And now after a 30 year hiatus, he's taken another picture. Prompted by his son Chris, he picked up a camera once again. Chris made this documentary about his father and his work, and you can watch the whole thing online at Vimeo. Not only is it interesting and informative, like all good documentaries it's very entertaining, too.
