Moments in Culture at London College of Communication

In 1966 The Who were on the verge of their big moment when Colin Jones befriended Pete Townshend and was allowed access to the band to photograph them. These images are a testament to the birth of a generation that defined popular music and fashion for decades to come.

A working class lad born in London in 1936, Colin Jones' creative life followed an unusual path by gaining a scholarship to dance in the English Royal Ballet. He bought his first camera whilst on tour in Japan, when running an errand for Dame Margot Fonteyn. He became a photographer for The Observer in 1962 and never looked back.
