AOP50 Exhibition

18 April - 1 June 2018

Lobby, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf

2018 will be a special year for us as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary. What better way to mark such an important milestone than to present a retrospective of our members' most iconic images at a public exhibition at one of the UK's leading locations?!

To recognise this important milestone, this exhibition, curated by Zelda Cheatle, presents a collection of images that define 50 years of the AOP, selected to illustrate the impact, diversity and quality of work by its members since 1968, who have included David Bailey, Lord Snowdon, Barry Lategan, Patrick Lichfield, Giles Duley and Nadav Kander. Their work will have been seen by the public the world over, from iconic images of celebrities and stars like Twiggy, in major advertising campaigns and countless car manufacturers, as well as documenting some of the world’s turning points, including wars, famine and humanitarian disasters. Many of their images have defined a generation, and helped to shape public opinion and create change.

Exhibiting artists include: 
Adam Hinton, Alan Brooking, Amit & Naroop, Anderson And Low, Andy Green, Barry Lategan, Carol Sharp, Carolyn Mendhelsohn, Clare Park, Clive Boursnell, Cornel Lucas, David Eustace, David Fairman, Donald Silverstein, Duffy, Duncan Caractacus Clark, Edgar Martins, Elizabeth Zeschin, Graham Ford, Harry Cory Wright, Jillian Edelstein, John Claridge, Jonathan Olley, Joseph Ford, Ken Griffiths, Laura Pannack, Lorenzo Vitturi, Marcus Doyle, Marcus Lyon, Martin Usbourne, Max Forsyth, Mike Sheil, Nadav Kander, Paul Wakefield, Paul Wenham Clarke, Peter Lavery, Rolph Gobits, Rory Carnegie, Sandra Lousada, Simon Norfolk, Simon Page Ritchie, Siobhan Doran, Spencer Rowell, Terence Donovan, Tessa Bunney, Tessa Traeger, Tim Flach, Tim Hetherington, Tom Murray, Tom Stoddart, Vikram Kushwah and Zed Nelson.
