Love from London: A City of Stars
Love from London: A City of Stars from Getty Images Gallery and Film London is a stunning exhibition of photographs featuring stars from the golden age of cinema in one of the world’s most popular and recognisable cities. From Audrey Hepburn in Richmond Park, Elizabeth Taylor feeding the pigeons in Trafalgar Square, Brigitte Bardot travelling on the tube and Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin arriving in London in 1961, the exhibition showcases a collection of stars at work and at play in various London locations.
In addition to featuring stars of the silver screen, over 50 black and white images also feature iconic landmarks across the British capital. These locations range from Diana Dors visiting the historic Billingsgate Market, a London market dating back to the 14th Century, to Alfred Hitchcock posing outside the British Museum, the world’s first national public museum founded in 1753, to Marilyn Monroe at the iconic Savoy Hotel which opened in 1889.
Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London said: "The exhibition houses a collection of outstanding images of renowned film-makers and movie stars which demonstrates what a rich, dynamic and popular city London is. London has always been a cultural hub and these images celebrate the city’s historical filmic credentials. The work of Film London, promoting film-making and film as an art form, will ensure the British capital remains one of the world’s most popular and culturally important cities."
Louise Garczewska, Director. Getty Images Gallery said: "I’m absolutely thrilled at how our research experts have delved into the depths of our world famous Hulton Archive and have yet again produced a stunning collection of iconic images. This wonderful photographic exhibition show-cases not only our beloved icons but also cherished landmarks across our capital. Love from London is a wonderful celebration of why this amazing city is so beloved by stars of stage and screen, highlighting the favourite places they visited whilst filming in the capital."
