David Hamilton is dreamy. Not him per say; the dreamboats are his subjects - and the general sense of hazy, beautiful innocence that they exude in each piece from his incredible body of work. Photographing young girls often got Hamilton into hot water - there were allegations of him "sexualizing young girls" and all that malarkey - but his style is entirely original and iconic, paving the way for that certain 'underdone femininity' that is so popular in art and photography now. Hamilton later became renowned for his film work, translating the soft focus style he'd developed in print throughout the 60's and 70's onto film, creating a cinematic experience that seemed almost other worldly. Not bad for a boy from Dorset, who was forced to cut his education short after an evacuation during WWII.This post comes to us courtesy of Chloe Hayward of PastPresentFutureLondon.
