This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see one of the world’s greatest private collections of photography, drawn from the classic modernist period of the 1920s–50s. An incredible group of Man Ray portraits are exhibited together for the first time, having been brought together by Sir Elton John over the past twenty-five years, including portraits of Matisse, Picasso, and Breton.

With over 70 artists and nearly 150 rare vintage prints on show from seminal figures including Brassai, Imogen Cunningham, André Kertész, Dorothea Lange, Tina Modotti, and Aleksandr Rodchenko, this is a chance to take a peek inside Elton John’s home and delight in seeing such masterpieces of photography.

Featuring more than 200 original press prints, drawn from the prestigious Black Star collection of twentieth century photoreportage.

The exhibition explores what role such images play in helping us understand the case for human rights, and further addresses the legacy of how photographs have historically functioned in raising awareness of international conflict.

The exhibition spans a time frame from 1945 until the early 90s and examines the major political upheavals, conflict, war and struggles against racism and colonisation that became especially urgent following World War II. It seeks to present these events in a global context rather than as isolated incidents, moving away from didactic perspectives on history.
