ELIZABETH TAYLOR BY RICHARD YOUNG
4th – 29th September 2012
Britain’s foremost celebrity photographer, Richard Young, will exhibit his most prized images of the late Elizabeth Taylor, in a Limited Edition collection spanning almost 40 years of her dazzling and iconic life.
This exclusive exhibition will take place at Richard’s gallery in Kensington, The Richard Young Gallery.
“I could not be more proud of the images I have taken of Elizabeth Taylor – she truly was a star. I was very young when I first started photographing her and I remember how I once gate crashed a party she threw for Richard Burton. I decided to hang out with the DJ (I asked him not to blow my cover), he then let me spin a few tunes, then as soon as the cake came out I got the shot, ‘The Kiss’, that came to sum up the powerful love affair of two of our greatest screen icons. I was asked to leave moments later, but it didn’t matter, it was a beautiful photograph of this incredible woman with the man she loved. Some weeks later, her office rang me and asked for a copy of the photograph, so I guess she loved it too!”
The exhibition, an homage to one of the greatest stars of our time, will comprise 18 iconic limited edition images in both colour and black & white, some of which were featured in the Richard Young documentary, Celebrity Exposed, recently aired on Sky Arts and available now on Sky Go.
