Proud Galleries are delighted to announce a new collection by the acclaimed photographer Norman Seeff.

Over his career Seeff has photographed a wealth of creative thinkers, artists, musicians, scientists, directors, Nobel Prize winners and actors including the likes of Blondie, Keith Richards and Steve Jobs.

Seeff was born in South Africa in 1939 and trained in emergency medicine before moving to the US to embark on a career in photography 30 years later.

Whilst living in New York, Seeff’s photographs were discovered by the former Vice President of Creative Services at Columbia Records, Bob Cato, who went on to introduce him to personalities such as Andy Warhol, Debbie Harry and Robert Mapplethorpe.

Gaining popularity, Seeff opened his own studio in Sunset Boulevard and began conducting photography sessions which soon became legendary for drawing crowds of up to 200 people.

At 78, Seeff continues to work on dynamic photographic and film shoots in LA.
