DESCRIPTION

Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913-2008 is the first major exhibition to bring together the magazine's historic archive of rare vintage prints with its contemporary photographs. The exhibition explores the ways in which photography and celebrity have interacted and changed, with portraits from the magazine's early period (1913-1936) displayed in conjunction with works from the contemporary Vanity Fair (1983-present). The Los Angeles presentation, which is sponsored by Burberry, will be the only U.S. stop on the exhibition's international tour. Photographers to be represented include Cecil Beaton, Harry Benson, Julian Broad, Imogen Cunningham, Annie Leibovitz, Man Ray, Mary Ellen Mark, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Edward Steichen, Mario Testino, and Bruce Weber.

Curated by Charlotte Cotton, editor of creative development, and David Friend, National Portrait Gallery, Terence Pepper, curator of photographs, photography

A collaboration between Vanity Fair and the National Portrait Gallery, London.
