Yves Saint Lauren, Le Courbusier, Marcel Dunchamp, Alfred Hitchcock, Edith Piaf, Elsa Schiaparelli, Kate Moss, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Miró... and many many many more are the ones who had the privilege to pose behind the lens of this incredible photographer. All his pictures were always taken in black and white. You can see them at the National Portrait Gallery until the 6th of June.

"Sensitive people faced with the prospect of a camera portrait put on a face they think is one they would like to show the world... Very often what lies behind the façade is rare and more wonderful than the subject knows or dares to believe." Irving Penn
