‘When I die I want to go to Vogue.’ David Bailey

Swayne’s early friendship with Bailey and Duffy (who photographed him on the back stairs of Vogue House in 1961) opened his eyes to all that was happening in London at this pivotal moment. His good looks and charisma meant he quickly became a ‘face on the scene’ and he seized the opportunity to pursue a life-long passion for photography. With no formal training or apprenticeship, Swayne picked up a camera for the first time at the age of 29 and began photographing his circle of friends: Bailey, Donovan, Duffy and several of the actors, models and stars on London’s unique scene. By the mid Sixties, he was shooting for Vanity Fair, Queen and Italian Vogue. His was a classic Sixties tale.’ Tom Swayne and Grant Scott for the United Nations of Photographers
