Marilyn Stafford: Silent Echoes

16 - 29 October 2018

Historic fashion photos from the swinging 60s and iconic portraits of Albert Einstein, Sir Richard Attenborough, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Indira Gandhi, Sir Roland Penrose, Twiggy, Joanna Lumley and Le Corbusier were included in a retrospective exhibition at After Nyne Gallery by American-born photographer Marilyn Stafford (b.1925).

 

This exhibition, curated by Nina Emett of FotoDocument and supported by Olympus, featured Marilyn’s portraits which are some of her most iconic work, spanning a wide range of international household names across fashion, politics, art, film and literature. The exhibition also includes lesser known figures - but equally deserving of a place in history - including Francesca Serio, the first Italian person to bring the mafia to trial for killing her son or Algerian mother who fled to Tunisia during Algeria's War of Independence featured in The Observer 50 years ago in 1958.
