Champagne Reception: 6.30 p.m.
Enjoy a superb Christmas dinner in the magnificent Regency restaurant at the Institute of Directors (IoD) at 116 Pall Mall, London, followed by a unique opportunity to listen to Richard Young, one of the most remarkable social documentary photographers of our time, as he presents his extraordinary images from a monumental career spanning forty years.
“Richard Young is one of the most important photographers
of the 20th Century.” Lord Snowdon
Richard’s body of work contains a wealth of iconic images from a distinguished range of famous subjects, from Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, from Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Junior to Tom Cruise, Princess Diana and Jackie Onassis. Over the years, he has covered the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscars in Los Angeles, as well as visiting orphanages in Romania with Michael Jackson and accompanying United States troops to Iraq.
In 2012, Richard was presented with the Ischia Art Award at the Ischia Global Film and Music Festival in Italy, and in the same year was featured as the subject of a four-part Sky Arts Documentary: Celebrity Exposed: The Photography of Richard Young. In 2013, he was awarded Le Prix Champagne de la Joie de Vivre, and later in the year, an Honorary Fellowship and the title Honorary Doctor in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the Field of Photography from The University of The Arts London.
The IoD is a grand Grade I listed Regency building and its sweeping marble staircase and vast walls covered in 18th and 19th century canvases provides a spectacular backdrop for the evening; the period restaurant at the IoD is a most fitting venue for this elegant, traditional Christmas celebration.
