Review:

A superb retrospective ... Donovan is a great .... Just when you thought there could not possibly be space for another fashion book rooted in the 1960s, this one proves rather compelling.... The heavy paper and high quality reproduction rewards the viewer ... a handsome posthumous monograph. --Observer

Make no mistake: This flawless volume is a love letter and a paean to a brilliant photographer ... [a] rare opportunity to see what can only be deemed as a brilliant collection of timeless and classic photos of a caliber that is steadily dwindling ... what a beautiful body of work. Mr Donovan left behind for us all to appreciate. --New York Journal of Books

[Donovan] changed the face of fashion photography during the Sixties.... If you need any further proof of his reputation, note that the foreword was written by American Vogue creative director Grace Coddington. You do not get a more stylish seal of approval than that. --GQ magazine

Book Description Art / Books, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Terence Donovan was one of the foremost photographers of his generation - among the greatest Britain has ever produced. He came to prominence in London as part of a postwar renaissance in art, fashion, graphic design and photography. Alongside David Bailey and Brian Duffy, photographers of a similar working-class background and outlook, Donovan was a new force in fashion photography. Together, they captured and helped create the Swinging 60s. They socialized with celebrities and royalty, and found themselves elevated to stardom in their own right. Gifted with an unerring eye for the iconic image, Donovan was also master of his craft, a technical genius who pushed the limits of what was possible with a camera. And yet despite his fame and status, there has never been a publication devoted to his fashion work, for he allowed none to be released during his lifetime. Terence Donovan Fashion is thus the first time his fashion pictures have been collected together in book form. Arranged chronologically, from the gritty monochromatic 1960s and 1970s to the vibrant and colourful 1980s and 1990s, the book reveals how his constant invention and experimentation not only set him apart from his contemporaries, but also influenced generations to come. Contributions from some of the many designers, models and art directors who worked with him provide fascinating insights into his practice. Compiled by the artist's widow Diana Donovan and former art director of Nova magazine and Pentagram partner David Hillman, who worked closely with Donovan for over a decade, and including an illuminating text by Robin Muir, ex-picture editor of Vogue, and foreword by Grace Coddington, creative director of American Vogue and advisor to the project, Terence Donovan Fashion is indisputably a landmark in the history of fashion photography.
