Peter Fetterman Gallery, Santa Monica, is hosting “Always Audrey,” an exhibition of exquisite selection of notable photographs celebrating the life and contribution of Audrey Hepburn, through June 8, 2019.

The works comprise a series of original published and never-before-seen prints from the gallery’s distinguished collection. It includes the works by Sid Avery, Cecil Beaton, Allan Grant, Bert Hardy, David “Chim” Seymour, Norman Parkinson, and Dennis Stock, among many others.

“Always Audrey” illustrates the life of actress and philanthropist Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993). The actress was regarded as a true one-of-a-kind personality whose timeless prestige continues to receive international recognition. In these pictures, one can get a glimpse of behind-the-scenes shots on films such as “Sabrina”(1954), and “My Fair Lady” (1964) to famous portraits of the doe-eyed beauty as a prominent style symbol. This showcase commemorates one of Hollywood’s most successful actresses and one of the world’s greatest fashion icons.

Born in London, Peter Fetterman has been deeply involved in the medium of photography for over 30 years. Initially a filmmaker and collector, he set up his first gallery over 20 years ago. He was one of the pioneer tenants of Bergamot Station, the Santa Monica Center of the Arts when it first opened in 1994.

The gallery has one of the largest inventories of classic 20th century photography in the country particularly in humanist photography. Diverse holdings include work by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sebastião Salgado, Steve McCurry, Ansel Adams, Paul Caponigro, Willy Ronis, Andre Kertesz, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Lillian Bassman, Pentti Sammallahti, Sarah Moon and Jeffrey Conley.

Fetterman and his colleagues are committed to promote the awareness and appreciation of the most powerful of mediums in an intimate, user-friendly salon environment.

The exhibition is on view through June 8, 2018, at Peter Fetterman Gallery, Bergamot Station 2525 Michigan Avenue Gallery A1, Santa Monica, CA 90404, USA.
