On 23 May the East Wing Galleries in Somerset House open a free photo exhibition: Blumenfeld Studio: New York, 1941–1960. Berlin-born Erwin Blumenfeld (1897–1969) was one of the most influential photographers of the 20th Century, sought after for his imaginative portrait and fashion photos. Shown is one of his photos of Grace Kelly for Cosmopolitan magazine (1955). His work also included advertising campaigns and war-effort propaganda posters. Around 100 colour photos and originals of his works in fashion magazines will be on display. The show runs until 1 September (CLICK).
