Tony Armstrong-Jones

Today’s post in Spitalfields Life of photographs of East London by Tony Armstrong-Jones suggest that he was a ‘jobbing’ photographer before he met Princess Margaret. On the contrary, I think they show what an interesting and creative photographer he was when he was living in Rotherhithe and riding on his motorbike round East London, exploring aspects of society which were not at all routine for someone making his living as a society photographer.


One thought on “Tony Armstrong-Jones

  1. Jean Walker says:

    By coincidence I’ve just finished reading his biography by Anne de Courcy and found much I’d never known. A terribly unhappy childhood which are him rather like the little girl in the nursery rhyme…when he was good he was very very good and when he was bad he was awful. But no one can deny he was a brilliant photographer.
