An exhibition featuring some of the 20th-century’s most iconic figures in music, film and fashion opens at a London gallery on Thursday.
Proud Chelsea has delved into its archive for Icons, a “nostalgic look at the faces and photographers” it has displayed over 15 years.
The images, never seen before in one complete exhibition, range from Elvis Presley, James Dean and The Beatles to Mick Jagger and Twiggy, above and below. It also features Gered Mankowitz’s 1964 shot of Marianne Faithfull in a London pub, left.
