LONDON.- Iconic images of Hollywood stars from the early days of the silver screen through to present-day box office heavyweights will be displayed in an exhibition to celebrate Hollywood’s 100th anniversary. Sponsored by Canon and running through 3rd April, ‘Hollywood through the lens – celebrating 100 years of Hollywood’ will take visitors on a journey from the 1920s, showing the evolution of Hollywood portraits through the golden age of cinema through to modern icons.

The images featured in the exhibition have been specially selected by both Canon and Getty Images Gallery from Getty Images’ archives, to represent both the influential individuals and photographic styles which shaped the decades. In addition to highlighting the changing fashions and faces of Hollywood, the images also offer a unique insight into the changing technology, techniques and styles of portrait photography enabled by the early cameras to the high resolution professional digital SLRs of today.

“The early days of Hollywood showcase the passion and creativity of the photographers of the age, using available technology and processes to capture a split-second magical image which tell a rich story of the subject, the era and even the cinematic style of the day,” commented Getty Images Gallery Director Louise Garczewska. “Every image featured in the exhibit allows us to appreciate the skills of the photographers behind the lens, and share their vision of Hollywood captured at that moment.”

“At Canon we are passionate about empowering people to take stories with our equipment,” said Yuji Shimodate, Director Photo Products Management & Professional Imaging, Canon Europe. “Hollywood is a shining example of story-telling at its greatest and the images which make up this exhibition offer an insight into the more intimate stories behind the icons who made Hollywood great.”
