Catalogue produced for the exhibition In Camera: Snowdon and the World of British Art at Pallant House Gallery from 29th September 2007 to 27th January 2008. Read more about the exhibition.
In 1965 the seminal book Private View was published. It confirmed a dramatic shift on the map of international contemporary art. In nearly 400 extraordinary photographs taken by Snowdon, the book documented the contemporary British art scene at that decisive moment and argued convincingly that London now equalled New York and Paris as an artistic capital of the world.
The exhibition held at Pallant House Gallery in 2007, In Camera Snowdon, was curated by Robin Muir, and showed a selection of these photographs taken by Snowdon of the World of British Art and Artists .
The exhibition catalogue , In Camera Snowdon, revisits a selection of these famous images and includes some rare alternative images not in the original Private View book, a number of which have never been published before.
