PIC BOOK BY DAVID HAMILTON

Today I saw that David Hamilton has died: by suicide apparently, in Paris at the age of 83. He’d recently been involved in rape allegations going back decades, so his suicide I’m sure will be seen as guilt by one side, and desperation by the other. I’m reblogging this, however, not to drag up old accusations of inappropriate images, but to recognise the incredibly strong influence he had on not just erotic photography.
His soft-focus, misty, languorous, intimate type of female portraiture informs fashion photography as much as studio and erotic/glamour – basically it was beautiful, tactile, and extraordinarily feminine. I really think that in a few years his influence will be seriously rehabilitated….
