Among the subjects: Muhammad Ali; W.H.Auden;  Brigitte Bardot; Alexandre Calder; Jean Cocteau; Jacques Cousteau; Anita Ekberg; Augustus John; Le Corbusier; Marcel Marceau; Anna Eleanor Roosevelt; John Steinbeck; Ravi Shankar; Michael Collins; Edwin Aldrin and Neil Armstrong and many more.

Visitor review: 'The exhibition was great, some classics and a few images I had not seen before. Fantastic gallery (extraordinary natural light) which was part of a larger "complex" including a bespoke hotel, bar, restaurant, bookstore, terrace and designer clothing shops for guys and gals, all owned and run by the gallery owner Ms Sozzani.'
