King of Cool

Hi Gary, Ben Hope all is good? The US trip looked ace, instagram feed was a great touch!
Thought this might be of interest to you and your blog readers? My friend Ben Burdett has a photography gallery in London and his new exhibition is original prints of Steve McQueen by John Dominis, the Life magazine photographer who spent three weeks with him and his first wife Neile Adams in California, 1963, just before The Great Escape came out. Lots of the iconic images, including a couple from the Mojave desert race and the one from the Life cover riding the Triumph, are on show and for sale.
It's worth a look in. It starts today and runs until 27th October at Atlas Gallery, 49 Dorset Street, Marylebone, London W1. More on their website. Sorry about the crappy iPhone images, I took them as I left the private view last night!
Cheers Mark MWA

Wow! Wonder what the prints go for?

Wow indeed Guy, going to visit the site and hopefully find out more, a genuine, real world legend.

I think they start at £790 and they're all authorised photographs, signed by the photographer who's a legend himself and is now in his 90's. He also photographed JFK, the Beatles, Woodstock, Sinatra, Hoffman, Redford and loads of others. Classic 60's reportage.
