Dafydd Jones Book Launch : England: The Last Hurrah

27 April 2023 
FREE 6.00 - 8.00PM
Please join us at the Centre for British Photography to celebrate the book launch of England: The Last Hurrah published by ACC Art books.

’There is no one better at capturing moments of privileged pretension… Dafydd’s genius is to preserve something elegiac in the satire.’ - Tina Brown, former editor-in-chief of Tatler.


In 1981, Dafydd Jones was hired to photograph English society for Tatler magazine. What resulted was an affectionate if somewhat irreverent portrait of the passing social seasons. With access to a secret garden of debutante dances, charity balls and Eton picnics, this follow-up to the critically acclaimed Oxford: The Last Hurrah masterfully captures the upper classes at their most riotous and their most vulnerable. 


The event will coincide with the opening of the exhibition,  Dafydd Jones. England: The Last Hurrah, at the Photography Sales Gallery at the Centre.
