    Acclaimed Hollywood photographer Bob Willoughby captured some of the biggest faces of the silver screen including Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor – but his most favourite subject was Audrey Hepburn, whom he met in 1953 shortly after her arrival in Hollywood. Their working partnership became a lasting and trusted one, which developed into a close friendship as Hepburn’s career took off after her oscar winning role in Roman Holiday. Throughout Hepburn’s many films, Willoughby captured the actress both on and off set; preparing for a scene, interacting with actors and directors, and at home behind closed doors. This new edition of photographs published by Taschen offers an unrivalled record of one of the 20th century’s most iconic talents, and the relationship between photographer and muse.

    Krijn DK Margate 07

    Turner Contemporary in Margate has unveiled a new installation by Dutch artist Krijn De Koning as part of its Summer of Colour program. Titled Dwelling (Margate/Folkestone), a labyrinth of block colours appears in two outdoor locations, one adjacent to the gallery, the other in a Victorian grotto on the Folkestone seafront (opening August 30th). We think the artist’s bold combinations of colour are particularly inspiring; from Aqua, to Aubergine and Khaki, it’s a lesson in pairing unexpected shades for a fresh and exciting palette.
