Things to see: The Last Hurrah

Dafydd Jones The Last Hurrah

Looking forward to this upcoming sales exhibition at The Photographer’ Gallery. I met Dafydd Jones at a Burberry show a couple of years ago, when his work was part of the Here We Are exhibition. What a lovely chap! He has taken pictures of posh partying Brits for the likes of Tatler, Vanity Fair and The Sunday Telegraph for decades, and his Instagram is a really great peek into his archive.

The Last Hurrah focuses on ‘the Tatler Years’ (81-89) and the ensuing antics of the upper classes. Oh, how we love to watch how the other half live with our noses pressed against the glass! It’s particularly culturally relevant right now too, with the idea of Britishness and class top of mind as we continue to navigate the ramifications of Brexit…

The Last Hurrah is from 3rd August – 8th September at The Photographers’ Gallery, 16-18 Ramillies Street, W1F 7LW. More info here!
