From shadow portraits in profile of his royal nephew and niece, Charles and Anne, in 1956, through famous fashion designers, to a profile of David Bowie in 1978, Snowdon’s images at the National Portrait Gallery in London celebrate a book of his work, SnowdonA life in View, edited by Frances von Hofmannsthal and published by Rizzoli.

Lord Snowdon was married to Princess Margaret, younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II, and during the height of his career was the artistic advisor of the Sunday Times Magazine in England, with his work published in the likes of Vogue and Vanity Fair on a regular basis.
The 84-year-old is currently the topic of a new exhibition with two rooms full of his work exhibited until June next year.
