Beginning today, Partridges customer and photographer to the stars, John Stoddart, is mounting an exhibition of 12 stunning black and white photographs on the gallery wall at Partridges’ café in its flagship store at Duke of York Square, Chelsea, SW3.
Many of the images were shot close to the Partridges store where they are now being exhibited including those of Daniel Craig, photographed at the Royal Court Theatre; Hugh Grant, photographed in John’s studio in Jubilee Place, Chelsea; Jeremy Irons, photographed in a taxi in Sloane Square and Anthony Hopkins who was photographed in John’s studio at the Blue Bird.
As John says “I lived in Chelsea for almost 25 years and am delighted to hold this exhibition in Partridges which for a long time was my local grocer. Many of the 12 photographs I have chosen to display were taken close to Partridges and I hope many people will pop in and see them.”
