INFO

Under the Influence: John Deakin and the Lure of Soho, explores the hidden corners and colourful characters of 1950s and early 1960s London Soho, as seen through the eyes of John Deakin (1912 - 1972).

Considered to be one of the greatest postwar British photographers, Deakin was renowned for his penetrating portraits, haunting street scenes and striking fashion work. The exhibition includes rarely seen and un-shown works including portraits of the painters Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach and Francis Bacon. It also includes the writers Dylan Thomas, Daniel Farson and Jeffrey Bernard, the celebrated beauty and artist’s model Henrietta Moraes and Muriel Belcher, proprietor of the fabled drinking den The Colony Room.

The exhibition is accompanied by the publication Under the Influence: John Deakin, Photography and the Lure of Soho, published by Art / Books in association with the John Deakin Archive and The Photographers’ Gallery.
