Terry Richardson's has been one of the more easily identifiable, controversial and emulated oeuvres in contemporary photography, ever since his first published reportages in the 1990s.

diCorcia is one of the artists who have enjoyed their greatest success with his excursions into fashion photography. His fashion works have been seminal to the narrative, cinematic style that emerged in the late 1990s. diCorcia has worked for several magazines, including Esquire, Harper's Bazaar, Details and W. He studied at the School of Fine Arts in Boston, followed by Yale University.
Born in Jaipur, India, Raghubir Singh (1942-1999) was a pioneer of colour photography, exploring the creative possibilities of the medium at a time when it was both unpopular and largely ignored.
Singh lived and worked in London, Paris and New York but made his best known work in his homeland. Over thirty years he strove to capture India and the infinite richness and variety of its people, places and customs.
In 1985 he was appointed the first Bradford Fellow in Photography. As well as presenting some of Singh’s finest work from India, this exhibition also includes a selection of his photographs taken in Bradford.

THE perception of Francesco Scavullo, the late fashion photographer best known for creating 30 years of seductive, cleavage-centric Cosmopolitan covers, is that he only ever cared about the last picture he took. That is how you are judged in the magazine business, by how many copies an image can move on the newsstand.
