Photography Documentary

The television highlight this week has to be the new documentary

The Man Who Shot the 60s
(BBC 4. Wednesday 13th, 9pm and 12.45am. Repeated Thursday 14th, 11pm).

Brian Duffy was one of the greatest photographers of his generation.
Along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan he defined the image of the 1960s and was as famous as the stars he photographed. Then suddenly in the 1970s he disappeared from view and burned all his negatives. With the first ever exhibition of his work due, Duffy has agreed to be filmed to talk about his life, his work and why he made it all go up in flames.
