Over the course of his career, Burt Glinn photographed many a famous face, but perhaps none so familiar as that of Lesley Hornby, the model better known as Twiggy. The wide-eyed face of the 1960s London fashion scene, Twiggy is captured here against a stark black backdrop that allows her iconic features to take centre-stage. Glinn’s ability to capture the essence of his models established him as the favourite photographer of many celebrities around the world.
