It was just a cheap studio chair, but then Christine Keeler straddled it and a modern icon was born. Here, photographer Lewis Morley recalls the photo session. This is the story of a political scandal, a chair, and a photograph. It was in London, at the height of the Profumo Affair. The photographer, Lewis Morley, had been commissioned to shoot some publicity shots for a forthcoming movie featuring the woman at the centre of the scandal, Christine Keeler. If London swung, he says, then one could say that in the early days, the club was perhaps the pendulum. Dudley Moore and his trio played in the basement while the night owls twisted the night away. The atmosphere in the studio was getting heated.
Chairs are made to sit on. When most people sit on one, they usually lean their backs against the backrest and their legs forward. However, there is a more unusual way of sitting on one. Instead of sitting normally in the chair, the sitter will turn the chair around and place legs on either side of the chair, typically using the back of the chair as an armrest. There are many different reasons why a person would choose to sit this way.
