Hepburn Portraits of an Icon
This fascinating photographic exhibition will illustrate the life of actress and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993). From her early years as a chorus girl in London’s West End through to her philanthropic work in later life, Portraits of an Icon will celebrate one of the world’s most photographed and recognisable stars.
A selection of more than seventy images will define Hepburn’s iconography, including classic and rarely seen prints from leading twentieth-century photographers such as Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson and Irving Penn. Alongside these, an array of vintage magazine covers, film stills, and extraordinary archival material will complete her captivating story.

There is nothing serious about these pictures and that shows when we take them. The only thing that usually is in my mind when I take them is to get as funny face as possible from the baby.”

Just like that we’re six months into 2013. A great year so far that has brought me so much growth and happiness. How is your year going? What passion projects have you set in motion so far?
One of the things I’ve been working with a lot this year is flowers. I’ve had the chance to collaborate with several flower pros learning to develop a natural passion I had no idea about! So, naturally I am obsessed with FLOWER the book by Andrew Zuckerman.

Introducing Israeli photographer Tamir Sher’s “Masters on 45s”
Th artist talks of his inspiration: “I took my old record player and decided to use it in my work before I threw them away. I put a reproduction of an old masters painting and my son’s superheroes on it and took pictures at variable speeds.”

moments that possess an abrupt
and unexpected monumentality.
In the past, his work mainly focused on playing with the concept of typology.
Mailaender’s recent work has involved sculpture and installation.
