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.
