Camera Press At 60

Born in 1947 : Camera Press at 60

Exhibition project with the National Portrait Gallery, London on the occasion of Camera Press’ Diamond anniversary. It featured a large selection of photographs by Camera Press’ founder, Tom Blau, alongside specially commissioned contemporary portraits of famous personalities turning 60 that year by some of the agency’s top photographers. All the works were acquired by the institution for their permanent collection.

I was invited to write a piece about my grandfather Tom, Camera Press and the exhibition for the NPG’s quarterly publication ‘Face to Face’
