BLOW-UP: ICONS UP-CLOSE AND PERSONAL
Classic portraits by some of the world’s greatest photographers
To celebrate the end of lockdown – Iconic Images Gallery will launch a brand-new exhibition highlighting brilliant images of some of the most recognisable faces in history.
Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 film ‘Blow-Up’ documented the life of a photographer in Swinging London and was described as “a picture about perception and ambiguity.” Terry O’Neill’s on-set photographs of actor David Hemmings serves as the inspiration for this exhibition, which concentrates on intimate portraits of icons from John Lennon to Audrey Hepburn, Muhammad Ali to Brigitte Bardot, Jimi Hendrix, Marilyn Monroe and everyone in-between.
‘BLOW-UP’ celebrates photography post-lockdown. After countless virtual encounters, viewers of the exhibition can place themselves in the up-close and personal perspectives of an impressive range of photographers with some of their most notable, collectable, and iconic images.
Photographers highlighted in the exhibition include: Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson, Douglas Kirkland, Kevin Cummins, Ed Caraeff, Michael Brennan, Eva Sereny, Lawrence Fried, Janet Macoska, Baron Wolman, Greg Brennan, Michael Ward and David Nutter.
Highlighted in the exhibition will be signed prints by not only the late photographer Terry O’Neill, CBE, but also Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone magazine’s first photographer, who passed away last month.
The exhibition is free and open to the public
Signed fine-art prints and stunning photography books are available to purchase – perfect for gift-giving!
