Terence Spencer

Born during a Zeppelin raid in 1918, Terence Spencer was a dynamic and hardworking storyteller who went on to carve two celebrated careers. Prior to his success as a photographer, Spencer served in the R.A.F. flying Spitfires. In the aftermath of the war, Spencer embarked on his photographic career with the American photojournalism Magazine, LIFE, documenting world events and crises in areas of conflict across the globe. Throughout the 1960s and beyond, Spencer used his experience as a photojournalist to document fashions, youth culture, ground-breaking music and celebrities, capturing the faces of real people, models, actors, designers, writers, and sportsmen alike.
