LONDON.- Chris Beetles presents Lichfield. Patrick Lichfield’s photography has graced the world’s media for over forty years. Chris Beetles announces the first-ever selling show of his remarkable work.

Lichfield’s photography for the 'Queen Magazine', and 'Life' helped crystallise the 1960s visual aesthetic. So much so that Diana Vreeland, the influential editor of American 'Vogue', summoned him work for her. He capitulated in 1968, and became one of only five British photographers to be retained by the magazine since its foundation (Bailey, Beaton, Parkinson and Snowdon being the others).

Lichfield’s archive is a rich seam of culturally important photography, much of which has become synonymous with our perception of the celebrated and fashionable in the late 20th century. Since his death in 2005 his archive has been extensively catalogued, and we will show a selection of these well-known images alongside recent discoveries made public for the first time.

Comprising of over 70 images, our exhibition will reassess his archive and reveal him to be one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. The exhibition will be on view 14th May – 4th June 2008, Monday – Saturday 10am – 5.30pm. A fully illustrated catalogue will be on sale, and all images will be featured on the website www.chrisbeetles.com.
