Product Description


"His life work has an immediacy which comes from an avid interest in fame combined with a brazen paparozzo. His celebrities are not so much caught in the act as playing to the camera." - Philip Hoare, 'Independent'

About the Author

Brodrick Haldane was born into the Scottish aristocracy in 1912. After school, the shy youth began using his vest-pocket camera to photograph his friends at parties in the London of the 1930s when social photography was an entirely new phenomenon. Spending summers in the South of France and winters in Switzerland or Austria, he chronicled the exploits of international society - the Queen Mother, the Aga Khan and Margaret, Duchess or Argyll were among his better-known subjects. After the war, he settled in Lausanne as the guest of his friend the Countess d'Antraigues, and throughout the 1950s mixed with the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Charlie Chaplin, the exiled Queen of Spain and Noel Coward. In the sixties Haldane returned to Scotland, where he would hold court for the next thirty years. Six months before he died in 1996, the man who invented modern society photography began recounting his life's escapades to Roddy Martine. The outcome of their conversation is Time Exposure which was published in 1999.
