Set in the swinging sixties, Blow-Up is a provocative film about a London-based fashion photographer and his accidental involvement in a murder.
Blow Up is a sneak peek into the world of mod fashion and culture. It tells the story of Thomas (David Hemmings) a high-fashion photographer who got bored with the glamorous-but-vacant lifestyle tied to his profession. Armed with his Nikon F SLR camera, he intended to document the depressing side of London, only to find himself unintentionally engaged in a murder mystery – involving poker-faced models, a suspicious couple, rolls of film and blow-ups.
It was said that the film was inspired by the life of esteemed fashion photographer David Bailey (See some of David Bailey’s iconic ’60s photographs here).
