Regular readers will recall our posts about Brian Duffy, one of the three leading lights of 1960s photography in Britain who later simply walked away from it all. We really only pointed to the excellent BBC video about him online, and our doing so was notable only because, as the photographer's son Chris Duffy later put it, we "pointed gazillions of people to the documentary" and crashed their server.
The video is still there (with more robust hosting)—to get to it you go to the Duffy website > Exhibits & Links > Play Documentary—and is still well worth seeing, if you haven't. But Duffy himself succumbed to lung disease last Monday.
Eamonn McCabe penned an obituary at The Guardian.
Our condolences to his family and friends.
