Total celebrity die-hard? Then don't miss this unique opportunity in Edinburgh to see the stars as you've never seen them before...
Photojournalist Harry Benson has captured images of the famous and fabulous for half a century. From Michael Jackson to Kate Moss, each photo captures the person, often by surprise or looking slightly vulnerable.
We’re used to seeing most of these celebs glammed up to the nines but touching images such as one of Elizabeth Taylor sitting on her bed after brain surgery – and a young and gorgeous Germaine Greer – are fascinating. Harry also captured natural images of happy moments like newlyweds Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow partying at Truman Copote’s legendary black and white masked ball in 1966.
If you’re obsessed with the world of celebrity or just want to see famous faces as you’ve never seen them before, this exhibition’s for you.
