Camera Press at 70 – a lifetime in pictures

Madonna, 1984

Founded in 1947, Camera Press celebrates it’s Platinum anniversary this year with Camera Press at 70 – a lifetime in pictures. Drawing on an unparalleled collection of images, and featuring work by some of the most iconic names in the industry this exhibition offers a fascinating insight into photography from the 1940s to the present day.

On display will be the work of photographic legends such as Yousuf Karsh, Cecil Beaton and Jane Bown through to contemporary names that include Andy Gotts, John Swannell, Jason Bell, Jillian Edelstein, Chris Floyd and Laura Pannack.

The exhibition will feature two further 70th anniversaries: 1947 was the year the young Princess Elizabeth wed Prince Philip and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) was founded. The first photographs distributed by Camera Press were of the wedding of the future Queen, and this famous image by Baron will sit alongside more recent unique portraits of Princess Diana, The Queen’s Jubilee and the christening of Prince George. The exclusive BAFTA portrait collection will shine a light on many of our best loved actors from the worlds of TV and film.

Also included in the show are photographs by three generations of the Blau family: founder Tom Blau, his son Jon and granddaughter Emma.
