BOMBSHELL / PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP SHOW / DOUGLAS KIRKLAND...

Proud Galleries is delighted to present Brigitte Bardot: BOMBSHELL an exhibition highlighting the formative years of the iconic French model, actor and activist. Bardot was a phenomenon of French New Wave cinema, embodying an unapologetically liberated sensuality that catapulted her into the spotlight whilst still a teenager. She became an international icon in the 1950s and ’60s with controversial films such as And God Created Woman and Contempt. French feminist writer and theorist Simone de Beauvoir declared her the first and most liberated woman of post-war France. This collection brings together the work of leading photographers who captured Bardot in her rise to fame. Although our gallery doors are temporarily closed, you can walk through our collections online.

Douglas Kirkland has been at the cutting edge of fashion, photojournalism and portraiture, working for the world’s most reputable magazines, for more than 50 years. As a young photographer in 1961 he was assigned to shoot Marilyn Monroe. His work ranges from exquisite nudes to powerful portraits of the notable and the notorious, from photo-journalism to the catwalk and is in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Houston Center for Photography and the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles. Kirkland remains in demand today by international magazines such as Vanity Fair and is the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Awards from numerous bodies including the highly valued Lucie Award for Outstanding Achievement. When not traveling the globe on assignment, he lives in the Hollywood Hills with his wife and business partner Françoise.

THE CLASH VS. SEX PISTOLS / PHOTOGRAPHY SOLO SHOW / ADRIAN BOOT

All photography fine art prints available to purchase. Venue performance show ticket holders only. Adrian Boot, one of Britain’s best-known music photographers, began his career in the early 1970’s freelancing for NME, Melody Maker, The Times, The Guardian and The Face. Adrian regularly works with the World Photography Organisation and continues to travel throughout India, Asia, Africa and Jamaica, searching for and promoting positive images of the planet and its people. Adrian was at the heart of documenting the punk scene in the U.K. and the U.S.

‘Then punk came along and crossed over with reggae and the whole ‘Jamaica scene’. Basically, they all lived on the same council estate so the music crossed over and you got a lot of white kids going to reggae ‘shebeens’ and vice versa. So, that’s how I kind of got involved in The Clash and the punk scene, as well as the reggae scene which was beginning to grow. The Clash were really easy – they were nice people and quite well educated; they were the ‘art-school crowd’ I was talking about. With the Sex Pistols – well, John Lydon was an intelligent guy and he didn’t suffer fools. The others, well, you wouldn’t even try to have a conversation with Sid Vicious, but I only photographed the Sex Pistols two or three times.’ Adrian Boot
