Description

Audrey Hepburn charmed cinema audiences in the 1950s as a new type of screen presence – gamine, doe-eyed and refreshingly casual. By the 1960s she had metamorphosed to become a trendsetting sophisticate, achieving unrivalled status as an actress, model, movie star and champion for underprivileged children worldwide.

Curator and archivist David Wills has amassed one of the world’ s largest private collections of original Audrey Hepburn photography. Now, in Audrey: The 60s, he has gathered a spectacular selection of work from her key photographers – much of it digitally restored from original negatives and transparencies – to create a truly breath-taking portfolio of images which pays homage to the most beloved and enduring style icon of the decade that changed everything.

Among the highlights are:

• Never-before-seen on-set photography from some of Audrey Hepburn’ s most cherished movies, including Breakfast at Tiffany’ s, Charade, My Fair Lady, How to Steal a Million and Two for the Road;
• Outtakes and rare images from fashion shoots, some not seen since their original appearance in Vogue;
• Previously unpublished work by photographers Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, William Klein, Howell Conant, Bob Willoughby, Pierluigi Praturlon and many others.

Pairing over two hundred stunning images with reflections and recollections from friends, photographers, designers, close collaborators and Hepburn herself, Audrey: The 60s is an unforgettable showcase of the actress’ s timeless beauty and extraordinarily influential style.
