Famed photo agency Magnum will celebrate 60 years of fashion photography with an exhibition split between two London venues from 14 September.
One show, at the Atlas Gallery, will feature vintage images from legends such as Robert Capa and Eve Arnold.
A separate show at The Magnum Print Room will focus on images from Fashion Magazine, featuring work from photographers such as Martin Parr, Bruce Gilden and Alec Soth.
The exhibition is entitled Documenting Style: 60 Years of Fashion Photography from Magnum Photos.
A Magnum spokesman said: ?This exhibition both demonstrates the flexibility of Magnum photographers – many of whom have taken fashion images as part of their documentary practice – and acknowledges that an engagement with the commercial fashion world has proven a fertile partnership for several of the agency?s members.?
The exhibition at Atlas Gallery runs until 13 October. The gallery is located at 49 Dorset Street, London W1U 7NF and is open Monday to Friday 10am-6pm; Saturday 11am-5pm.
The Magnum Print Room show will run until 2 November at 63 Gee Street, London EC1V 9RS. The gallery is open Wednesday to Friday 11.30am-4.30pm.
Both shows are free.
