Mr Sixties

60 ST

Philip Townsend's striking photography encapsulates the 1960s ranging from celebrity (before the term was dumbed down by wannabees) to everyday life including the tragic aftermath of the 1966 Aberfan mining disaster.

Philip's life has been as illustrious as the era he photographed having made numerous transformations to make Madonna look like a one-trick pony. Apart from being a landmark photographer of the 1960s, Philip has been a journalist courting at times controversy. However, it is to his photographic archive to which he has returned over the last few years, and most notably Philip was the first photographer of the Rolling Stones with the first shoot occurring a few days after Andrew Loog Oldham had become their manager.
