All About Bond - Proud Chelsea
PROUD Chelsea is celebrating 50 years of James Bond with a unique exhibition from Terry O’Neill: All About Bond, on display from September 13 to November 4, 2012
Showcasing intimate, behind the scenes photographs from the world’s most influential and iconic film franchise, this collection is the epitome of British style.
All About Bond boasts shots of six official Bonds, from Sean Connery to Pierce Brosnan, and provides a rare chance to see the famous faces of the films, up close and personal: Sean Connery snoozing in a director’s chair; George Lazenby poolside; Roger Moore cavorting in a hotel suite; and countless striking Bond Girls.
Exactly 50 years since Dr No’s release and the initial shot of Sean Connery was taken, Proud Chelsea celebrates Terry O’Neill and the legacy of James Bond with this stunning collection.
Another Bond exhibition, Designing 007 – Fifty Years of Bond Style, is on display at the Barbican until September 5, 2012.
Also at Proud Chelsea: Marilyn: Intimate Exposures.
Meanwhile, Phantasmagoria, Photographs by Marco Sanges, continues at Proud Camden until September 30, 2012.
Marco Sanges’ iconic black and white photography is inspired by the sequential nature of cinema, in particular the luminous black and white films of the silent era. His work traces a narrative of imagination, desire, and the fantastical.
And looking ahead to next year, The Strand Gallery is presenting The Terry O’Neill Award – January 17 to January 31, 2013.
Running since 2007, and consistently advancing over the past few years, these have become one of the UK’s most contested photographic Awards. The Terry O’Neill Awards are aimed at finding and promoting new talent, creating a platform for upcoming photographers.
The Terry O’Neill Award is unique, as it is based around the series or the narrative and the categories are open, so photographers can enter fine art, photo-journalism, still-life, portratiture, landscape, wildlife, fashion. The judges are looking for the strongest series of work and for the strongest narrative. For more information on how to enter, click here.
