ST LEONARDS ON SEA.- Lucy Bell Gallery is presenting “Archival Show” touring from Getty Images Gallery.

Getty Images Gallery have plucked enduring and evocative images that span the last century and a half to bring you an incredible insight into their Archive, from over 80 million images that are stored in the Getty Images Archive – images accumulated over its 160-year history.

This section of their Archival Show includes work by Bert Hardy, Thurston Hopkins, Slim Aarons, Davis Boulton, The John Kobal Foundation, Clarence Bull Sinclair, Terry Fincher, John Engstead, and Vigil Apger, and the Scott Polar Research Institute, and features some of the Archives’ best selling images as well as some lesser known treasures.

“Access is critical and there is really no point in burying our content away like that final scene from the Lost Ark. Photography evolved in the early 20th Century as a mass communication device, and in doing so, brought the world to the masses. This is what we aim to do increasingly with our myriad collections” says Matthew Butson, Vice President of Hulton Archive.

This tour to Lucy Bell Gallery in St Leonards emphasises Getty’s ethos of sharing bringing their incredible collection to a wider audience. The Archival Show includes a varied selection of works from the “Picture Post Collection”. Picture Post was a photojournalistic magazine published in the UK from 1938 to 1957. and is considered a pioneering example of photojournalism. One of the most renowned Picture Post Photographers is Thurston Hopkins who was based in East Sussex and is considered to be one of the UK’s most respected photographers. Hopkins worked regularly for Picture Post during the 1950’s, exploring Britains’ “social foothills”, alongside other great photographers such as the celebrated Bert Hardy whose timeless and classic images, such Blackpool Railings, are included in this exhibition, portraying documentary photography at its finest.

Also represented in this exhibition is the John Kobal Foundation. John Kobal was a renowned authority in cinema and Hollywood portrait photography, and the author of over 30 film and photography related books, he created the archive over a number of years, which includes an estimated 20,000 original negatives. The Foundation now encourages emerging photographers by way of discretionary grants.

American photographer Slim Aaron’s glamorous portraits of the Hollywood lifestyle and Riviera, where we are given insight into the playgrounds of the rich and famous, with rich and vibrant colours, as a celebration of the “dolce vita”, and the luxury and frivolity of a generation at play.

All of the prints are for sale, and Getty images Gallery works closely with its in-house darkroom technicians, who expertly print from a range of original glass plate and 35mm negatives, as well a high-quality C-Type prints creating beautiful and affordable editions that suit any collector, ranging from £130-£3,700
