Duffy: A visual record of the photographic genius
Exhibit: July 8 – August 28, 2011
The first ever full-career retrospective of the legendary British photographer Brian Duffy will open July 8th at Idea Generation Gallery, coinciding with the publication of Duffy – the first and only book of his work. Duffy infamously quit photography in 1979 when, at the height of his career, he took the majority of his photographic work into the back garden and set it on fire. Featuring more than 160 images painstakingly rediscovered by Duffy’s son after years of searching through archives and publications around the world, this exhibition has truly risen from the ashes.
