FRANCIS BACON AND THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF JOHN DEAKIN

This illustrated talk will discuss the work of John Deakin (1912-1972), one of the finest photographers of his generation. A significant number of photographs, fragments and negatives by Deakin were found among the items of Francis Bacon’s studio. Bacon had turned to photography rather than drawing from life and he commissioned John Deakin in the late 1950s-mid 1960s to take photographs of his friends. This talk will explore how not only did the depth of John Deakin’s tonal contrasts and directness of his vision resonate with Francis Bacon but how the recurring motifs of Deakin’s life’s work significantly reflected Bacon’s concerns.

Each Talk at Nano Nagle Place begins at 11:30 a.m. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. outside the Conference Hall.
