Dominic Neergheen: ‘The Denney Edition’


The Denney Edition – Celebrating an Icon of 20th Century Style

Anthony Denney is probably the most iconic figure you’ve never heard of! He was an enigmatic and significant figure of 20th Century style, who lived at Rainham Hall in the 1960s. Denney was one of Conde Nast’s chief photographers and his work featured in British Vogue magazine. In this podcast, Dominic Neergheen, New Museum School trainee at National Trust Rainham Hall, uncovers the life of this extraordinary character.
