Barry Humphries & Friends
Limited Edition Set of Lewis Morley Photographs

About the Photographer - Lewis Morley
Lewis Morley established his reputation as one of the key British photographers of the 1960s with a series of photographs of celebrities including Charlotte Rampling, Vanessa Redgrave, Jean Shrimpton, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. His most famous image, however, remains the provocative shot of Christine Keeler in an Arne Jacobsen chair.

Lewis migrated to Australia in 1971 where his photographs for Dolly, POL, Belle and other publications provide an evocative record of changing Australian culture through the 1970s and 1980s.

Major exhibitions of Lewis' work have been held at the National Portrait Gallery's in London and Canberra, V&A Museum in London and The Art Gallery of NSW.
Lewis Morley first met Barry Humphries in 1962, when Barry gave his first UK solo performances in Peter Cook's Establishment Club, downstairs from Morley's studio.
