Proud Chelsea Exhibition
1st August - 21st September 2013
Proud Chelsea is pleased to present Icons; an exhibition of the most iconic and influential faces from fashion, music, and film shot by some of the most world-renowned photographers of the 20th Century.
We have delved into our extensive archive for a nostalgic look at the faces and photographers at the heart of Proud Galleries' 15-year history. It is an opportunity to peruse an exceptional collection of the most classic photography of all time, never seen before in one complete exhibition.
Icons will take you on an awe-inspiring journey through the past century and the photographs that encapsulate the length and breadth of popular culture. The exhibition will include a mesmerising portrait of Twiggy and David Bowie was taken by Justin de Villeneuve, an ethereal looking Jane Birkin by Duffy, Terry O’Neill shooting Sean Connery on the set of Diamonds Are Forever and Peter Webb's legendary 'Sticky Fingers' photo shoot. Portraits of icons such as Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles will also be shown along with a collection of recently discovered early shots of the Rolling Stones.
Whether you are a first time visitor or a Proud Galleries regular, this exhibition will reignite your love of some of the most iconic portraits of the 20th century.
