Abstract or Summary

Considered one of the most significant voices of 1960's London, Lewis Morley took one of the mostsingular iconic images of this period - a naked Christine Keeler on an Arne Jacobson chair. At the heightof the Profumo Scandal, this image of sex and power has often overshadowed his remarkable sampling of fringe actors, musicians and fringe-dwellers of London's swinging Sixties. These players included David Frost, Joe Orton, Charlotte Rampling, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, the firstpublished photo of fashion models Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton and the young actor Michael Caine. Brian Epstein, Clint Eastwood, Judi Dench, Lindsay Anderson, Peter O'Toole, Vanessa Redgrave, John Cleese, Francois Truffaut, Salvador Dali, Tom Jones and Barry Humphries - indeed, almost everyone who was 'The Sixties". In 1971, as Swinging London faded and Britain entered a recession, Lewis and his family emigrated to Australia, where he worked extensively for Australian design & fashion magazines. He continued his portrait work including artists Lloyd Rees, Brett Whiteley, controversial figure Juni Morosi, and writer Peter Carey. The set includes a new documentary "Caught In The Act" Lewis Morley's Theatre photograph, and extras.
