An exciting new exhibition of three leading 60s photographers will go on show in The Canon Photography Gallery at the V&A on 16 September 1999.
"Triple Exposure" explores the short and intense careers of Michael Cooper, John Cowan and Ron Traeger whose dynamic talents helped shape the vibrant spirit of photography in London in the 1960s.
Highlights include classic shots, rarely seen before, of some of the best known cultural icons of the period, including: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Richard Hamilton and the earliest fashion shots of Twiggy.
Intimate portraits of the Rolling Stones, adventurous and
stylish fashion photography, as well as reportage of anti-Vietnam
demonstrations in both London and Chicago characterise one of
the most fascinating eras of recent history.
