Museum: Portrait Gallery

Location: 2nd Floor, North

This exhibition features approximately 100 photographs -- beginning with the era of the Beatles to 9/11 -- by New York-based, Scotland-born photographer Harry Benson. Divided into several sections, his photographs chart a fascinating course mapping the worlds of politics and culture, sports and celebrity.

Sections include The British in America with the Beatles, Germaine Greer, and Francis Bacon; America in Crisis with Martin Luther King, the Robert Kennedy assassination, Carl Bernstein, and Bob Woodward; The Stars Come Out with Barbra Streisand, Johnny Carson, and Greta Garbo; The Mirror Cracked with Johnny Cochran, Michael Jackson, and Mike Tyson; and Twenty-first Century with Rudy Giuliani, General Schwarzkopf, and George W. Bush.

Organized by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
