Marilyn Stafford: A Life in Photography at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery
  • Brighton Museum & Art Gallery
    Royal Pavilion Gardens
    Brighton
    BN1 1EE
This retrospective exhibition of US born Sussex based photographer, Marilyn Stafford encompasses the most comprehensive display of the photographer’s work to date.

Works come from an international archive spanning four decades and include celebrity portraits, fashion shoots, street photography, humanitarian stories and newspaper reportage.

Marilyn Stafford’s photography career got off to a remarkable start when she was invited, as a young woman, to take stills of Albert Einstein. Since then, she has accumulated an eclectic body of work, spanning from 1948-1980, including further portraits of famous and influential figures such as Edith Piaf, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mulk Raj Anand, Indira Gandhi, Albert Finney, Twiggy and Joanna Lumley. She has also photographed many ordinary people like the illiterate Sicilian peasant woman, Francesca Serio, who took the Mafia to trial for murdering her son.

The exhibition also includes a range of ephemera from Stafford’s archive including cameras and original cuttings, recordings of her speaking about her life and work and an additional display of silver gelatin prints.

A Life in Photography is curated by Nina Emett in collaboration with Marilyn Stafford’s daughter Lina Clerke.

Admission payable.
