Weds 23rd May: "BLUMENFELD STUDIO" at Somerset House

Whilst JCrew were celebrating cashmere with the rainbow fountains of St. Martins in Kings Cross,  fountains were also blazing across town at Somerset House for the private view of "Blumenfeld Studio:  New York, 1941–1960".  Thanks to Charlie Hocking for these photos that give an indication of what to expect from the 100 colour photos, and also a look at the graphics layout he has worked on for the show with Teo Connor Studio.  The free exhibition focuses on the little-known history of the Berliner's photography studio at 222 Central Park in New York during the 40's - 60's.  Alongside prints are original works in the fashion magazines of the time such as about the capital's fashion scene you can join tours every Thursday which explain the story behind the images .......
