Bert Hardy

BBC News has caught up with the Bert Hardy Centenary Exhibition at The Photographers' Gallery in London and has posted a slide show of some of his historic photos: CLICK. For decades he was one of Britain's top photojournalists, capturing striking images from the Blitz of World War II, through the Korean War to the Gorbals slums, using a second hand Leica camera he adapted to shoot in poor lighting conditions. From 1938 to 1957 he worked for the UK's popular Picture Post magazine. Above is one of his sunnier photos: Maidens In Waiting, Blackpool (1951). The exhibition runs until 26 May (CLICK).
