From the late 1950s, Lewis Morley worked on various assignments for Tatler magazine, depicting British socialites and celebrities while he was the first to take published photographs of models, Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy in the early 1960s. The British photographer thus created many of the legendary images of the Swinging Sixties, capturing the flamboyant spirit of the era alongside its new idols. In 1963, Lewis Morley met Christine Keeler, a young actress promoting a film. When the film producers asked for nude images of the 19 year old, Lewis Morley expelled everyone from the studio and asked her to undress and sit astride a fake version of an Arne Jacobsen chair. The same year, the picture was published, uncredited, in the Sunday Mirror and soon became the scandalous embodiment of the decade’s sexual freedom. Christine Keeler later resented the image for being ‘a constant reminder of difficult days’ while Lewis Morley believed it had overshadowed the rest of his work and often referred to it as ‘that fucking Keeler shot’.
