Dafydd Jones: The Vanity Fair Years

Leica Gallery / London / Art

“In 2015 after a disastrous magazine launch I found myself with an empty diary for the first time since 1980,” says the photographer Dafydd Jones, who for decades captured with intimacy and elegance the worlds of art, fashion, and literature on both sides of the Atlantic. “I joined a community darkroom and printed a collection of silver gelatin prints in a boxed set called ‘Exhibition in a Box’”—photographs from his early years on the London scene. Jones has now shifted the focus to his Vanity Fair years, starting in 1989, when he moved to New York to cover star-studded parties for the magazine. On display at the Leica gallery are prints that call up that glamorous time, with subjects ranging from Kate Moss and Johnny Depp to a pre-Titanic Leonardo DiCaprio. —J.V.
