Leonard David Hamilton, photographer
                                   1933 -2016

Lenny was the name we knew him as when he join the De Laune in July 1948
and was expelled from the club by the committee in December 1952 with some
other members for their conduct on club-runs. He later became known as
David Hamilton, his death was cover in the national press and TV, he became
an internationally know photographer and film maker and had many books

His artistic skills began to emerge during a job at an architect's office. At
age 20, he went to Paris, where he worked as graphic designer for Peter
Knapp of Elle magazine. After becoming known and successful, he was hired
away from Elle by Queen magazine in London as art director. Hamilton soon
realised his love for Paris, however, and after returning there became the art
director of Printemps, the city's largest department store. Hamilton began
photographing commercially while still employed, and the dreamy, grainy style
of his images quickly brought him success.
