Yul Brynner – Photographer

Yul Brynner: A Photographic JourneyExhibition Review: Yul Brynner – A Photographic Journey: As well as starring roles in films such as ‘The King and I’, and ‘The Ten Commandments’ (and having two PhDs), Yul Brynner was an accomplished photographer whose subjects were some of the most acclaimed actors of the 20th century. In this photo, his Leica looks a bit strange because it is left-to-right reversed, in a mirror. So does Yul, actually.

‘A Photographic Journey’, in London’s The Little Black Gallery showcases some of his most famous images, and Matt Golowczynski went along to take
a look.

If you’re in or around the Chelsea area in London this (free) exhibition is worth a visit, particularly as the gallery also plays host to a small, permanent collection of Bob Carlos Clarke’s work (whose wife co-founded the gallery following Clarke’s death). Prints and other media are also available for purchase.

Yul Brynner: A Photographic Journey runs until 11 February, at The Little Black Gallery, London. For more information visit http://www.thelittleblackgallery.com/
