celebrity, fashion, advertising… he did it all

many thanks to my mate ‘dominic davies’ for pointing this one out: the BBC documentary on sixties icon & bad-boy ‘brian duffy’ has been put online, a very enjoyable hours’ worth of soundbites & urban legend tales….

update: oops i forgot the link, enjoy…

here are some memorable ones i noted:

…the photographers were the stars; not the models…

…i really enjoyed the war, no i really mean it i enjoyed the war…

…easier than drawing, so i thought "i know what i’ll do… i’ll take up photography"…

…look what was happening a year before in editorial photography and then a year later; it was a new era…

…all of the pictures were dodgy birds with their teeth showing…

…bring the goblin round & i’ll shoot him…

…a bit of a bastard, but one you enjoyed inviting round for dinner…

…(photography) is the only thing any numb-skull can do…

…i’m an innocent bystander, helping culture & art…

…he said "can you make it expensive?"
i said "no problem lovey!"…

…advertising: that was 99% of my work? crap…

…that morning i decided to burn… my negatives…

…art photography is a very very modern idea…

duffy on himself: he wasn’t as steady as a tripod…
