Patrick Lichfield’s Caribbean is currently on show at The Little Black Gallery, 13A Park Walk, London SW10 0AJ running until the 7th of December. This is the first exhibition of Lichfield’s Caribbean images, many unpublished, representing all genres of Lichfield’s photography: landscape, portraiture, fashion and nudes. It follows the internationally acclaimed exhibition Patrick Lichfield: Nudes at The Little Black Gallery in 2012.
Lichfield (1939-2005) was known internationally as a renowned photographer who worked for all the major magazines. His pictures were exhibited worldwide, and he published several books during his career. The National Portrait Gallery dedicated a retrospective exhibition to the first twenty years of his work in 2002. His great break was when he was summoned by Diana Vreeland, the doyenne of fashion editors, to photograph the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and he was given a five year contract with American Vogue. In 1981 he was appointed official photographer at the wedding of his cousin The Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer.
Lichfield established a home on Mustique, which he had first visited in the mid-1960s where he spent a considerable amount of time visiting the Caribbean islands, providing a backdrop for many commissions – Cuba was the unprecedented location for the 1994 Unipart Calendar.
