Photo Noir: The Art of Cornel Lucas is an exciting exhibition of work by the only stills photographer to be awarded a BAFTA for his service to the British Film Industry, which will open to the public on 17th February – 29th March at the National Theatre’s Lyttelton exhibition space.
Cornel Lucas (1920 – 2012) began his career as a stills and portrait photographer working for British Film Studios during the 1940s and 1950s. He soon became the UK’s leading movie star photographer, capturing the great and the good of both the UK and US film industries during the golden age of cinema, including Marlene Dietrich, Brigitte Bardot, Diana Dors, Joan Collins and David Niven. In 1998 Lucas became the first stills photographer to be awarded a BAFTA for his services to the British film industry
