Swinging Sixties London touched upon all of the remarkable developments in and around photography, fashion, celebrities, music, magazines, design and social change. FOAM brought together the work of iconic photographers of the sixties – who in their heyday were often as famous as the stars in front of their cameras. The exhibition featured work by Terence Donovan, Brian Duffy, John French, Norman Parkinson, John ‘Hoppy’ Hopkins, James Barnor, John Cowan, Eric Swayne and Phillip Townsend.

The exhibition was opened by Alderman Kasja Ollongren, and ran from 12 June – 02 September 2015.
