|Dr David Lewis Hodgson is a renowned psychologist who, during the 1960s, worked as a photojournalist on Fleet Street. His archive, represented exclusively by Mary Evans Picture Library, provides a fascinating and alternative insight into a decade of British history with significant social, technological and political change.
The jewels of Hodgson's collection are the images that document the unconventional lifestyles and eccentric groups in British society during that time, with hippies, stunt troops, contortionists, North Sea trawler fishermen, nude magic acts, a hairstylist who experiments with vegetables and a witch's coven all included. Hodgson's photographs also chart many of the scientific and technological advances; from the construction of Concorde to more kooky inventions such as the 'Cube Car' and Britain's first underwater house. Another noteworthy set of images within the collection are the amassed archive photographs and sketches relating to the Jack the Ripper murders… definitely not for the faint of heart.
