The Art of Travel Exhibition

As the summer months approach and the sun begins to shine, this exhibition could not come at a more appropriate time. ‘The Art of Travel’ reflects our travel ideals; from planes to trains, boats to cars, fame and fashion meet before the camera to celebrate how to reach our destinations of choice.

From April 15 – May 20, 2019, the exhibition will feature the work of eight iconic photographers who captured the tempting backdrop of excursions, from some of our favourite cities which include New York City, Paris and London. From Terry O’Neill’s iconic portrait of Elton John in front of his private plane used for his 1974 world tour, to John Swannell’s ethereal portrait of actress Helena Bonham Carter on a boat in Venice, Milton H. Greene’s glowing image of Marilyn Monroe disembarking a plane, Norman Parkinson’s Queen magazine cover shoot of a stunning model on the back of a horse in full gallop in Egypt to a portrait of the band Blue with a Jaguar Mark 2 car by Clacton Pier in Clacton-on-Sea by Kevin Cummins, these images and many more represent flight, movement and the alluring romance of being elsewhere.

Set to spark your inner wanderlust, visit Chelsea’s Iconic Images Gallery for some summertime inspiration.

Open: Monday to Friday – 12.00pm – 6pm, weekends by special appointment.

And the winner is…

AND THE WINNER IS… the latest exhibition to arrive at Iconic Images Gallery will showcase the works of six globally recognised photographers and present seminal images from a golden age when photographers were allowed to be up close and personal by the stars of the stage and screen; when photographers were allowed honest and intimate access to the stars’ lives.

The lives of these iconic photographers, Terry O’Neill, Douglas Kirkland, Norman Parkinson, Milton H Greene, Julian Wasser and Eva Sereny,¬†were so intertwined with the stars and the images provide an inside story of the relationships between the people in front of and behind the camera. See Terry O’Neill’s famous private shoot with the film star who would become his wife, to a selection of rare contact sheets from Norman Parkinson and Eva Sereny’s one in a million shot capturing Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in one of the greatest chase scenes on film.
