Proud Galleries will be hosting a photographic exhibition titled 'Audrey Hepburn: Beyond the Screen', displaying rare portraits of Audrey Hepburn captured by a selection of high-profile, twentieth-century photographers. 

This collection brings together the work of Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson, Bob Willoughby, Eva Sereny, Mark Shaw and Douglas Kirkland; each celebrated for capturing their own, very distinctive, portrayals of Hepburn.

Renowned for her progressive acting roles, stylish sensibilities and humanitarian endeavours, Hepburn remains one of the most instantly recognisable icons of the 1950s and has charmed generations since the Golden Age of Hollywood and 'Audrey Hepburn: Beyond the Screen' revisits these iconic times, celebrating Hepburn's legacy on the 25th anniversary of her death.

Through a unique perspective and style, each photographer included within this collection captures Audrey Hepburn's instantly recognisable appearance.

Bob Willoughby’s portraits of a young Hepburn, fresh-faced just after the release of her first film 'Roman Holiday' are presented alongside Terry O’Neill’s youthful colour portraits which glow with a childish excitement and exude her playful sense of humour. Her memorable style is articulated through the classic fashion shoots of Norman Parkinson and Douglas Kirkland, as is her characteristic sophistication by Eva Sereny during the filming of 'Always'. Mark Shaw's candid portraits of Hepburn, taken from a LIFE magazine shoot in 1953, detail the actress’s routine on set during the filming of the famous film 'Sabrina'.
