David Montgomery

Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Montgomery followed mentor Lester Bookbinder to England in the early sixties.  He is internationally known as a portrait photographer of high profile statesmen and celebrities including members of the British Royal family, Bill Clinton, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, The Rolling Stones and Sean Connery, to name a few.  He has contributed regularly to Vogue, The Sunday Times, and Rolling Stone. A side to photography, the post office commissioned Montgomery to photograph a special edition stamp for the millennium which won a silver award at the Design and Art Direction Awards. His collection of images capturing sixties pop culture have become standard descriptions of the decade. Proud Chelsea featured Montgomery’s photographs of The Rolling Stones in Decca Years: The Rolling Stones 1962- 1971 in 2011.
