The Leica Store in London continues the exhibition "Dafydd Jones: The Vanity Fair Years" until 17 February 2020.
In 1988 Dafydd Jones was invited to New York by the journalist and editor Tina Brown to cover parties for Vanity Fair magazine. With just 2 rangefinder Leicas with 3 lenses, a light meter and a couple of flashes he covered a book party for the magazine and was offered a contract.
Leica Gallery London will be showing a capsule collection from this body of work accrued by Dafydd Jones during this very particular time – the decadent heyday of the magazine covering lavishly glamorous parties in Los Angeles and New York brimming with glittering stars and socialites at the peak of their sparkle.
