Tony Armstrong Jones, well-known to the public as 'Lord Snowdon' because of his marriage to Princess Margareth was a famous British photographer. He was a contributor to LIFE, Vanity Fair, British and American Vogue, The Sunday Times (London) and many other international magazines. It has been said that Snowdon knows everyone worth knowing. His pictures have captured a complete cross-section of society: E.g. Alec Guiness, Laurence Olivier, Vanessa Redgrave, Helen Mirren,Keneth Branagh, Rupert Everett, Christian Dior, Rudolf Nureyev and the British royal family. Included here too are his famous photographs of old age, and of disabled and mentally ill children and adults, for some of his most memorable pictures have documented the unfairness and inequality of life. Brief texts written by a distinguished group of contributors approach Snowdon´s work from a variety of perspectives.(from the front flap).
