Cambridge Connections at the National Portrait Gallery

Until September 16th, the National Portrait Gallery will celebrate the career of photographer Antony Barrington Brown with an exhibition called Cambridge Connections: Photographs by Antony Barrington Brown.

A total of 15 portraits from the photographer’s illustrious career will be displayed, showing leading figures in Cambridge during the 1950s.

One of the most recognisable portraits from the collection is that of James Watson and Francis Crick, who discovered DNA, back in 1953. The photo was later used as the cover for Watson’s memoir The Double Helix (1968).

Other photos on display include theologian and historian William Chadwick, arts administrator and journalist Sir John Tusa, co-founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company John Barton, cartoonist and magazine editor Mark Boxer, former Archbishop of Canterbury Baron Runcie, and film director, producer and critic, Michael Winner.

See this interesting new exhibition on a London weekend break.
