Terence Donovan: Speed of Light

Terence Donovan: Speed of Light
Library Shelf Location 18.DONO
Publication Date 2016

This publication marks the first major retrospective of Terence Donovan (1936 - 1996) one of the foremost photographers of his generation.

Donovan rose to prominence in London as part of a post- war renaissance of the creative industries and came to represent a new force in fashion and, later, advertising and portrait photography. He operated at the heart of London’s swinging sixties, socialising with and incisively capturing the scene’s chief protagonists and actors. Gifted with an unerring eye for the iconic, Donovan was a master craftsman commanding both the technical and compositional to redefine studio photography.

The exhibition comprises a compelling mix of classic and well-known vintage prints as well as previously unpublished material and a selection of his video works. Rare samples of ephemera including magazine spreads, contact sheets and the photographer’s treasured cameras will also be on display. In addition, Donovan’s studio notes, previously unseen sketches and diaries will offer audiences privileged access to his creative process.

Terence Donovan: Speed of Light, the first major retrospective of Terence Donovan, will be showing at The Photographers' Gallery 15th July - 25 September 2016.
