Yosuf Karsh Exhibition

Another must see exhibition ….Составление бизнес плана инвестиционного проекта

The first major London exhibition in 30 years of portraits by renowned photographer Yousuf Karsh (1908 – 2002) will go on display at Beetles + Huxley. The exhibition will include signed lifetime prints of twentieth century sitters from the realms of politics, film, royalty and art including Winston Churchill, George Bernard Shaw, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keefe, Joan Miró, Audrey Hepburn, Albert Einstein, Fidel Castro and Martin Luther King.

Karsh was one of the most respected and acclaimed photographers of the century. Fascinated by “greatness”, he aimed to capture the essential character of his sitters, instilling them with both charisma and dignity in his nearly 60-year career. A highlight of the exhibition is Karsh’s iconic wartime portrait of Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Taken in 1941, whilst Churchill was visiting Ottawa, the portrait was a career-defining break for Karsh. Churchill refused to discard his cigar but Karsh took the cigar out of the politician’s mouth and managed to capture the glare of the world’s most famous politician of the time. Published worldwide by newspapers and magazines, the photograph established Karsh’s international reputation and was one of the most reproduced photographs in history

From 20th September 2016 to 15th October 2016

William Eggleston Portraits

Exhibition at National Portrait Gallery, London from 21st July to 23rd October 2016

William Eggleston is a pioneering American photographer renowned for his vivid, poetic and mysterious images. This exhibition of 100 works surveys Eggleston’s full career from the 1960s to the present day and is the most comprehensive display of his portrait photography ever.

Eggleston is celebrated for his experimental use of colour and his solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1976 is considered a pivotal moment in the recognition of colour photography as a contemporary art form. Highlights of the exhibition will include monumental prints of two legendary photographs first seen forty years ago: the artist’s uncle Adyn Schuyler Senior with his assistant Jasper Staples in Cassidy Bayou, Mississippi, and Devoe Money in Jackson, Mississippi.

Also on display will be a selection of never-before seen vintage black and white prints from the 1960s. Featuring people in diners, petrol stations and markets in and around the artist’s home in Memphis, Tennessee, they help illustrate Eggleston’s unique view of the world.

If anyone goes please could they share their thoughts about the exhibition …
