A lifetime of famous faces from Camera Press
When it comes to the history of modern photography, 1947 was certainly a vintage year. Not only did it produce the nowlegendary photographic cooperative Magnum Photos, but it was also the moment when a London-based Hungarian emigré, Tom Blau, decided to found the Camera Press. Blau may not register in the same way as Capa or Cartier-Bresson, but the portraits taken by members of Camera Press certainly did. This 70th anniversary show includes memorable images of Marilyn Monroe and Henry Kissinger, Queen Elizabeth II and Sid Vicious from the likes of Baron and Snowdon, Cecil Beaton and Karsh, whose portrait of Winston Churchill now adorns the UK’s £5 note. Camera Press at 70: A Lifetime in Pictures is on show at Art Bermondsey Project Space in London from 17 May to 10 June (www.project-space.london).
