Crane Kalman Brighton presents Legends – a selection of images of some of the greatest stars from the worlds of movies, music and sport. From the glamour of the red carpet at a Hollywood Oscar night ceremony to a youthful Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney sitting opposite each other in a first class train carriage on the way to Bangor, the pictures are a celebration of the work of the press photographer.
Legends features images from the Getty Images Gallery Collection and will run at the Crane Kalman Gallery from 3rd April to 3rd May 2009.
Taken from the world's largest photographic archive, (Hulton Archive & Getty Images), the Getty Images Gallery collection features an extraordinary time capsule of images from the last century – social and political images that both made the news – as well as images from behind the headlines – and show all aspects of life in the 20th Century.
This selection of pictures concentrates on some of the giants of the silver screen during the Golden Years of Hollywood. Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Cary Grant and many others are all captured at the height of their glorious careers, and photographed by some of the most celebrated photographers of their times – Murray Garrett, Michael Ochs and Bert Hardy
The photographs in the Getty Images Collection were originally sourced from the Hulton Archive which comprises over 300 separate collections; over 40 million negatives. This library of images was founded by Edward Hulton, the publisher of Picture Post which in turn revolutionized picture magazine publishing. The Hulton Archive was taken over by the BBC in 1957, which then added collections from the Evening Standard and the Daily Express, providing images of British and international events and personalities.
The collection changed hands again in 1987; the Keystone Collection was added, which included image archives from Topical Press, Fox Photos and Central Press. This added to the wealth of images, portraiture, news and feature stories from the 1920s to the 1970s. Keystone also includes Three Lions which has images from US news and features from the 1900s to 1957. Since merging with a publishing firm, the company is now known as Getty Images.
Legends: The Getty Images Gallery Collection will run from 3rd April to 3rd May 2009 at Crane Kalman Brighton.
