Famous faces in Winchester photography show
UNLIKELY as it sounds, you can currently find The Queen, Richard Nixon and Mick Jagger all in the same place in Winchester.
Or to be exact, striking images of them, which have been captured by renowned Hampshire photographer Jane Bown.
The exhibition to coincide with her latest book, Exposures, is currently on display at The Gallery in Winchester Discovery Centre.
National newspapers have been using her pictures for decades, and as long ago as the late 1940s.
Traditionally working in black and white using only natural light, she has photographed countless household names.
Those featured in the collection of images at The Gallery include John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
A host of movie stars and filmmakers are also there including Michael Caine, Orson Welles and Spike Lee.
The framed image of the latter is hanging next to one of Margaret Thatcher in the current exhibition.
With artists, directors, politicians, musicians and actors on show, organisers have enjoyed a steady stream of visitors.
Four weeks into the show, more than 4,300 people have already been through the door.
Exhibitions officer Kirsty Nutbeen said: “It’s our hope to put on an interesting series of exhibitions here, and hope that people in Hampshire will want to come and see them.”
The exhibition of work by Jane Bown, who now lives in Alton, will be displayed until Sunday, May 20.
After that, The Gallery is due to host a multi-screen film installation called Faster, Higher from Saturday, May 26 to Sunday, July 15.
