Helmut Newton’s photography has helped sell millions of copies of upmarket fashion magazines; at the same time these same glossies provided an international platform for uniquely talented photographers. When a great photographer is at work, you imagine that every frame will be a work of art. For some, that might even be true, but for Helmut Newton (1920-2004), who captured some of the most memorable images ever published in the glossy fashion magazine, this was...

For a brief six years of his life the legendary Hollywood hellraiser showed a uniquely creative talent as a photographer, as a recent series of exhibitions has revealed.  Dennis Hopper knew the hard life and the high life. This was the man who was born on a farm in the mid-1930s American dust bowl, moving on to make a remarkable transition into notable film roles such as Rebel Without a Cause with James Dean (1955),...

Creative use of light, dark and shade—this was the magic that made masterpieces when the camera was in the hands of Horst.  Horst’s career spanned 60 years, and long before the end of that career he was already considered one of the twentieth century’s greatest fashion photographers. But Horst’s interest went far beyond shooting fashion images—he was a master of light, composition and atmospheric illusion, who could conjure a world of sensuality and sophistication. Over...

The face of a young Mick Jagger peers out from beneath the full fringe of a hooded fur coat. Staring straight into the camera, pouting unabashedly, the Rolling Stones singer and rock and roll icon is instantly recognisable. The striking composition of this black and white image, captured by David Bailey, has become as iconic as Jagger himself. Selected from Bailey’s Box of Pin-Ups (1965), some of Bailey’s most critically acclaimed works, this photograph is...

Considered a great of twentieth century photojournalism, Michael Peto’s career is celebrated in a new display of previously unexhibited portraits. As a suave Richard Burton jots down notes, a bejeweled Elizabeth Taylor passes him a cigarette. The year is 1963, the occasion is the critically acclaimed BBC radio recording of Under Milk Word, and photojournalist Michael Peto (1908-70) is on-hand to snap the intimate moment between two of Hollywood’s elite. Captured in the early stages...

Images by one of Britain’s leading celebrity photographers, Terry O’Neill, shown at the recent exhibition at the Chris Beetles Gallery in London, remind us of Terry O’Neill’s unique ability to encapsulate the essence of the many celebrities he captured on film during the last fifty years. Terry O’Neill was born in the East End of London and left school in 1952, aged 14, with the firm ambition of becoming a jazz drummer. He was already...
