Dafydd Jones – THE LAST HURRAH
After winning a prize in a photography competition run by The Sunday Times magazine in 1981 with a set of pictures of the Bright Young Things, British photographer Dafydd Jones was hired by, bible of the upper crust, Tatler magazine to photograph the Hunt Balls, society weddings and debutante dances of the British upper class season, and would continue to do so until 1989.
I had access to what felt like a secret world. It was a subject that had been written about and dramatised but I dont think any photographers had ever tackled before. There was a change going on. Someone described it as a last hurrah of the upper classes. – Dafydd Jones
