Morley's autobiography is subtitled
Self-exposures: Some Long, Some Short, Some Indecent
wherein the master photographer remembers forty famous
sittings (and some standings!) from the 1960s and 1970s.
This memoir has the insider view of
the swinging sixties, through memories and 40 photographs,
of the key fringe players. Thematically arranged, he
touches on key figures from London's theatre, film,
fashion, music and cultural renaissance. Christine Keeler,
Joe Orton, Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Michael Caine, Peter
O'Toole - even Clint Eastwood, Truffaut and Dali! In
Australia he tells of Lloyd rees, Brett Whiteley and
Peter Carey for example, and the book is introduced
by Morley's friend of forty years, Barry Humphries.
A fascinating and very funny memoir.
200 pages, plus 32 pages of photographs.
