Christine Keeler and that chair

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The iconic and much copied photograph of Christine  Keeler was shot by Australian photographer Lewis Morley in 1963, at the height of the Profumo Affair. The session took place in his studio on the first floor of The Establishment Club at 18 Greek Street, Soho.

He took three rolls of film during the session; more of the photos can be seen here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’d recommend Lewis Morley’s own account here
