Terence Donovan


PhotoUtopia Intro: One of the less celebrated photographers of London’s swinging 60’s, he is nonetheless a massively influential photographer, a quick look at the work of modern day photographers, such as Rankin and you’ll be able to see his influence at work. Amongst Donavon’s work are some iconic classics.


Terence Donovan (14 September 1936 – 22 November 1996), was a British photographer and film director, best remembered for his fashion photography of the 1960s. He oversaw the music video to Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" and "Simply Irresistable".
Along with David Bailey and Brian Duffy, he captured, and in many ways helped create the Swinging London of the 1960s: a culture of high fashion and celebrity chic. The trio of photographers socialised with actors, musicians and royalty, and found themselves elevated to celebrity status. Together, they were the first real celebrity photographers.

Donovan shot for various fashion magazines, including Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, as well as directing some 3000 commercials, and a 1973 movie Yellow Dog. He also made documentaries and music videos, and painted.
