Two months after photographer Antony Barrington Brown died in a car crash, his portraits - including this famous 1953 image of the co-discoverers of the structure of DNA, James Watson and Francis Crick - are to go on display.
The Wiltshire-based photographer and his wife died near their home at Upton Lovell, near Warminster, in January. This image of the co-founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company, John Barton, was taken by Barrington Brown in 1957.
Before he died, the 84-year-old photographer donated 240 of his portraits - including this 1954 image of film director, producer and critic, Michael Winner - to the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) in London.
The NPG has selected 15 portraits of leading figures in Cambridge taken in the 1950s - including this image of cartoonist and magazine editor Mark Boxer - for an exhibition celebrating Mr Barrington Brown's career.
Other portraits on display include ex-Archbishop of Canterbury Baron Runcie and theologian and historian William Chadwick.
Arts administrator and journalist Sir John Tusa, photographed at Trinity College in 1958, said: "I remember Antony as informal and unhurried in his approach. He made being photographed seem easy."
Cambridge Connections: Photographs by Antony Barrington Brown (1927–2012) will be on display at the National Portrait Gallery until 16 September 2012.
