This December, Magnum Photos’ Print Room pops up at the 99 Mount Street Gallery in Mayfair with an exhibition of classic portraits of cinematic royalty, both historic and contemporary. Collectively Magnum’s archive of film imagery, the product of working on film sets capturing behind-the-scenes moments and photographing film directors, actors and actresses on and off camera, includes a large part of the history of cinema. The pictures included in this exhibition date primarily from the Fifties and Sixties, with the inclusion of a small selection from the Twenty First century, and are a mix of vintage and contemporary prints.
