PRLog - Dec. 7, 2011 - COVENT GARDEN, U.K. -- The Vintage Seekers collection, of both black & white and colour photographs, features iconic models of the decade including: Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Debbie Condon and Marie Les Gris, and classic shots of beauties modelling vintage 60s designs by Nina Ricci, Biba, Mary Quant and Courrèges.
Jean Shrimpton by Ronald Falloon 1962
Originally a music student at Heidelberg University, Falloon was encouraged to pursue photography after his raw talent was recognized during a summer placement in Cannes. In the 1960s he landed on opportunity to work with eminent photographer, John French and soon shot his mentor’s famous network of models, celebrities, fashion houses and publications. As a reserved and modest character, however, he did not share the same fame as his contemporaries such as David Bailey and Terence Donovan. Nonetheless, he is regarded with equal talent and esteem.
Vintage Seekers celebrates Ronald Falloon as the man who ‘shot the 60s’: typifying the period with his timeless, evocative photography, particularly with the faces of the decade such as Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton as frequent subjects.
Falloon’s images from this era have been largely unseen until 2007, when they were displayed in a London Exhibition at Nolia’s Gallery, followed by their display in Liberty department store in 2010. VintageSeekers provides the opportunity not only to view his fashionable works, but to own them as well.
Ronald Falloon’s works are available in Photography within the Collectibles category of VintageSeekers online. They are amongst other iconic vintage pieces encompassing art, book, film, music, travel, gaming and more. Vintage Seekers pride themselves in ‘curating a heritage lifestyle’, featuring classic and quality items from the 20th century, in collectibles, motoring, wine, design, watches and wine.
