Cornel Lucas might not be a name that is familiar to you, but if you have an interest in photography or classic cinema, it certainly should be.
His work will be showcased at an exhibition at the Chris Beetles Fine Photographs gallery from 20 July. Lucas’ career took off after he photographed Marlene Dietrich in the 1930s and commissions from other film stars soon came his way. The exhibition brings together 40 of his portraits which capture the glamour of film stars from the 1940s and 1950s.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 20 July to Saturday 27 August at Chris Beetles Fine Photographs, 3-5 Swallow Street London W1B 4DE.
