‘It's great to be here. It's great to be anywhere’ Keith Richards (the Rolling Stones)

Bailey and Duffy gave Swayne a photographic education, they were all from the same background and were in the right place at the right time, Eric went with it. A big part of the London scene, he knew everyone, and started to photograph them; becoming an unofficial chronicler of his amazing circle. He was good friends with Keith Richards and Mick Jagger and would often tell me of the times when they would all sit in the back of limousines eating space cakes, going on crazy shopping sprees. Charismatic, good looking and great fun, Eric Swayne became a central part of London’s counter-culture; just at the time when social divides were blurring and together with Bailey, Donovan and Duffy they were redefining the conventions and aesthetics of photography.

Eric Swayne was surrounded by a troop of revolutionary artists, musicians, photographers and models; many of whom were Swayne's friends. Between them they would all play their part in London's 60s creative explosion, and their cultural impact is still felt today. This is a unique and intimate record of that special time, taken from the inside.
