Cornel Lucas photos of Hollywood stars shown in London


Classic Hollywood portraits from the 1940s and 50s by London photographer Cornel Lucas are the subject of a new exhibition.

Mr Lucas, now 91 years old, has photographed film stars such as Brigitte Bardot, David Niven, Dirk Bogarde and Katherine Hepburn.

In 1998 Mr Lucas was awarded a Bafta for his services to the British film industry - he remains the only photographer to have been honoured in this way.

A retrospective of his photos is being shown at the Chris Beetles Fine Photography Gallery in central London.
