A timeless figure of the stage and screen, Elizabeth Taylor possessed a rare and multi-faceted fame – a fame that spoke of her talent, beauty and tireless activism. The actress channelled her celebrity status into the humanitarian work to which she remained resolutely committed throughout her life. In the exhibition, the public can witness the journey of a life lived remarkably and the complexity that drives such unimaginable success.
Photographs on display include never-before-seen images of the actress that span the decades of her legendary career, as well as a behind-the-scenes look into the life of one of the most photographed women of all time. With exquisite studio portraits, contact sheets and unguarded backstage shots, the exhibition is a photographic exploration of one of the most extraordinary women of our age.
