Following the internationally acclaimed exhibitions Patrick Lichfield's 'Nudes' in 2012 and 'Caribbean' in 2013 at The Little Black Gallery, the latter becoming the fastest selling show in the gallery's history, we are proud to now present 'The Best Of'. The exhibition represents all genres of Lichfield's photography: landscape, portraiture, fashion and nudes.
Patrick Lichfield (1939-2005) was an internationally renowned photographer who worked for all the major magazines. His pictures were exhibited worldwide, and he published several books during his career, with a retrospective 'Perceptions' published by Quadrille in 2012. The National Portrait Gallery dedicated an exhibition to the first twenty years of his work in 2002.
His great break was when he was summoned by Diana Vreeland, the doyenne of fashion editors, to photograph the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and he was given a five year contract with American Vogue. In 1981 he was appointed official photographer at the wedding of his cousin The Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer.
Many of the photographs in the exhibition were taken for the celebrated Unipart Calendar which Lichfield shot over three decades, or in the Caribbean where he established a home on Mustique.
