John French: Fashion photographer - a little history

John French (1907-66) was a famous English portrait and fashion photographer, who created superb shots for anyone and everyone to appreciate. French’s work was cleverly and artistically focused on the rise of fashion in London in the 1950s and 1960s, and his work still lives on in all of its brilliance today, being held at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A).

His specially lit, meticulously arranged shots were immensely popular at the time, and are still appreciated today. In fact, his forward-thinking approach to fashion photography meant his work was once showcased in nearly every magazine and newspaper, which was revolutionary for the time period (the mid-20th century).

John French: photographer with a difference

The iconic photographer had an eye for modern fashion trends and captured famous clothing designers of the time, like Mary Quant and Christian Dior, to exhibit their role in fashion in a simple yet defining way. He also shot impeccable photos of models such as Pattie Boyd, Tania Mallet and Jean Shrimpton, who were representative of the changing fashion trends from the ‘50s right through to the ‘60s.

Incorporating John French photography into your home

Bring the impressive style of John French’s photography, which has been beautifully reproduced by Tall Boy Prints, into your home. His work deserves to be placed somewhere special and in a contemporary setting to capture its true essence. As expected, his work brings a sense of style to any home, but which are the best rooms to really make the most of these designs?

The living room

Think of incorporating John French art prints into your living room interiors, carefully hanging one of his photographs on the wall above your fireplace. This would certainly create a perfect centre stage piece to truly set off the room. Another great way to bring French’s shots to life could be resting one of his pieces against the mantlepiece for a more modern take on his art.

The bedroom

The legendary photographer’s bold pieces could also be the perfect addition to any bedroom, set amongst a white or dusky grey coloured wall to complement his iconic black and white images. Consider the placement of these prints carefully, which will entirely depend on the room’s design. A great place to hang French’s designs would be on the wall above your bed’s headboard, in the centre.
