.SKIN: Photography exhibitions this year

The National Portrait Gallery announced last month the opening of a major Audrey Hepburn photography exhibition: Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon.

The exhibition will bring together a remarkable selection of classic as well as rarely seen photographs of the celebrated film star, fashion icon and humanitarian. Her life and career will be explored from July this year coinciding with the 65th anniversary of Hepburn’s little known career-changing performance at the West End night club Ciro’s.

Horst P. Horst (1906–1999) was one of the leading photographers of the 20th-century. In his illustrious career, Horst traversed the worlds of art, fashion, theatre and high society and was one of Vogue’s star photographers. This retrospective exhibition explores and presents his most iconic fashion images as well as less known work.
