As the Summer months approach and the sun starts to shine, Iconic Images Gallery is proud to present images that reflect how we wish to travel. From planes to trains, boats to cars, fame and fashion meet before the camera to rejoice in how we get from place to place. The exhibition also highlights some stunning images of some of our favourite cities to escape to, including New York City, Paris and, of course, London.
THE ART OF TRAVEL will feature the work of eight iconic photographers who captured the tempting backdrop of excursions. From Terry O’Neill’s iconic portrait of Elton John in front of his private plane used for his 1974 world tour, to John Swannell’s ethereal portrait of actress Helena Bonham Carter on a boat in Venice, Milton H. Greene’s glowing image of Marilyn Monroe disembarking a plane, Norman Parkinson’s Queen magazine cover shoot of a stunning model on the back of a horse in full gallop in Egypt to a portrait of the band Blur with a Jaguar Mark 2 car by Clacton Pier in Clacton-on-Sea by Kevin Cummins, these images and many more represent flight, movement and the alluring romance of being elsewhere.
The exhibition will highlight images from the golden age of travel up to the present day.
The Art of Travel exhibition features the work of Terry O’Neill, Douglas Kirkland, Norman Parkinson, Milton H. Greene, John Swannell, Ed Caraeff, Kevin Cummins and Eva Sereny.
