Photographer David Hamilton (1933-2016) was born and raised in London. He had to interrupt his studies due to the outbreak of the Second World War and evacuate to Dorset, whose wonderful views and landscapes may have awakened the talent of the future photographer. After the end of the war, Hamilton returned to London, graduated from school and moved to France, where he lived all his life.
Hamilton's works were sold out by influential publications, his photobooks brought millions of dollars in profits, five films were released and countless exhibitions were held. The photographer has repeatedly become the cause of many scandals, as he often took pictures of children's nudity for his works.
In Paris, at the age of 20, he got to Peter Knapp in ELLE magazine and began working as a graphic designer.
After achieving success at ELLE and becoming a popular author, Hamilton moved to Queen magazine in London as an art director.
Changing jobs, he became interested in photography and soon developed his own special, recognizable style.
