Caught On Camera - exhibition dates announced - An exhibition of rarely seen vintage photographs from the Camera Press Archive runs from 10 April to 16 May
On Camera, photographers photographed - an exhibition of rarely seen vintage
photographs from the Camera Press Archive- opens at Tom Blau Gallery on 10 April
and continues until 16 May 2003.
The act of taking a photograph is something that is familiar to most of us. Whether professional or amateur, for business or for pleasure, we have all taken photographs at some time. Less common is for photographers themselves to be captured on film.
Street photojournalism, fashion shoots, holiday snaps, family portraits and celebrity paparazzi shots all feature in this exhibition of photographers at work. It includes the famous- John Lennon seen filming with his cine camera, style guru Cecil Beaton caught in a mirror reflection whilst photographing the actress Katherine Hepburn- and the unknown. A camera clad Japanese crowd reinforcing our stereotypical view contrasts with startling images of nuns sporting military-style cameras. Historical events such as Korean propaganda and a Ku Klux Klan rally also contribute to this fascinating collection of images.
This intriguing show comprises some 45 images originally produced in the fifties
and sixties for publication and includes work by Gyenes, Jane Bown and Peter
Sellers. These vintage prints are one of a kind, and are available for sale
