This is the first book dedicated to the portraiture of legendary photographer Terence Donovan. Edited by Diana Donovan and David Hillman with an introductory text by Philippe Garner.

Donovan’s interest in portraiture spanned the entirety of his four-decade career. During this time, he worked for major British and international magazines including Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle. Donovan undertook numerous private portrait commissions, photographing public figures from the worlds of the arts, politics, and business, in addition to members of the British Royal family. Some of his many sitters include Yasser Arafat, Naomi Campbell, Sean Connery, Diana Princess of Wales, Twiggy, and Charlotte Rampling, among many others.

Along with his iconic portraits, this book features unseen work from Donovan’s archive, never previously published or exhibited. It will also include magazine spreads, contact sheets, and pages from diaries and daybooks—rare ephemera that provide a unique insight into Donovan’s working practice.
