Graham Keen was a candid chronicler of the 1960s London scene centred on Soho's Better Books and the Indica Gallery, crossing over with the Marquee Club and hidden venues where unknown mega-stars of the future tried out ideas. Working with his friend Barry Miles, Graham’s work shows an instinct for cool and the talent of the underground. He caught those who fuelled and defined the 1960s: John Hurt, Joan Baez, Ronnie Scott, Pink Floyd, Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney, The Who, Marianne Faithfull, Diana Rigg, Philip Larkin, Jim Haynes, Barry Miles, John “Hoppy” Hopkins, Kasmin, “Groovy Bob”, Allen Ginsberg, Bertrand Russell, Francis Bacon, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Gustav Metzger, John Latham, Jeff Nuttall, William Burroughs, Lucian Freud and Alberto Giacometti.
