The first published photographs of Twiggy were taken by Lewis Morley, but it was Barry Lategan's studies of her in the Daily Express with her haircut created by Leonard that launched her as 'the Face of 1996'. Ronald Traeger photographed her on a number of occasions. This contact shows his method of working and the facsimile enlargement 'a blow-up' is inscribed by him to show Twiggy's favoured choice.
