The Duffy Archive Collection

‘The thing about the photographs is that there is no smell or sound and in sense it tells the truth and yet it is a lie’ - Brian Duffy

Brian Duffy or ‘Duffy’ as he was known was one of the leading photographers of the twentieth century. For eight years, between 1972–1980 he worked with David Bowie on five separate occasions and helped shape and influence his changing personas across the decade; we are delighted for the first time to be able to share some of his incredible prints here

Duffy first came into prominence during the swinging sixties when together with fellow fashion photographers David Bailey & Terence Donovan, Norman Parkinson nicknamed the three ‘The Black Trinity’, as they were friends and rivals and became known for their dynamic photography that shaped a generation.

Our collection includes images of Aladdin Sane, arguably Bowie's most iconic shot, with both Eyes Down and Eyes Open versions available. Plus stunning photographs of Bowie in his early Ziggy Stardust years and later in his during his Scary Monsters period.
