‘My mother was right: When you’ve got nothing left, all you can do is get into silk underwear and start reading Proust.’ Jane Birkin
This stunning series of portraits as a contact sheet is included in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery in London, United Kingdom. Eric Swayne and Jane Birkin had a relationship from 1965 to 1966. Jane Mallory Birkin, OBE is an English-French actress, singer, songwriter, and model. She attained international fame and notability for her decade-long musical and romantic partnership with Serge Gainsbourg. She also had a prolific career as an actress in British and French cinema.
Eric Swayne was surrounded by a troop of revolutionary artists, musicians, photographers and models; many of whom were Swayne’s friends. Between them they would all play their part in London’s 60s creative explosion, and their cultural impact is still felt today. This is a unique and intimate record of that special time, taken from the inside.
