Share with friends :


1. MUHAMMAD ALI
by NEIL LEIFER



At this time everyone was looking for the punch connecting and the gum shields flying. But Neil Leifer always pushed the envelope


2. MARILYN MONROE
by BERT STERN

Everyone was fixated on Marilyn Monroe's bosom but Bert Stern made a thing of her back. It's coy and it's very clever

3. TERENCE STAMP
by TERENCE DONOVAN
This wonderful, brooding image of Terence Stamp from 1967 was taken on the set of Far From The Madding Crowd. He was one of the great actors of that era


4. ELIZABETH TAYLOR
by ANONYMOUS
Elizabeth Taylor has to be one of, if not the, most beautiful women who ever walked God's Earth, and this publicity still - taken by an unknown photographer - has real class and would grace any cover today

....

5. ANGELINA JOLIE
by GEORGE HOLZ
Nobody had heard of Angelina Jolie then - it was 1998 and she was a minor TV actress, but everything about her screamed 'Star!'


6. AUDREY HEPBURN
by TERRY O'NEILL

Audrey Hepburn was always photographed as the iconic, stylish beauty - but she had such an impish sense of humour and she could get really frisky

7. AMERICAN MARINE
by W EUGENE SMITH

This portrait of a battle-weary American Marine fighting his way across the Pacific during WWII always moves me. You can see how a handsome young man has become toughened and grizzled by war


8. CHURCHILL
by KARSH
This has everything you expect in a Churchill photograph: the authority, the bulldog expression. Everything but the cigar, because Karsh took it off him, which made Churchill scowl even more


9. ANTHONY BLUNT
by LORD SNOWDON
Anthony Blunt was the Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures then but was later revealed to be one of the most infamous spies ever. This captures a certain steeliness in him


10. AFGHAN GIRL
by STEVE MCCURRY
It's a truly great image. I recall being mesmerised by it when I first saw it. The eyes just burn out of the page at you. It's known as 'the Afghan Mona Lisa'
