JD Malat Gallery is pleased to announce our participation with Dave Benett in Photo London, 2022. After a hit first show at JD Malat Gallery, full of iconic photos from his longstanding career, Benett’s participation in Photo London 2022 will have two additional never before seen images of the infamous Kate Moss. Moss has been one of Benett’s favourite celebrities to shoot, someone who embodies the spirit of London’s glamour and party scenes.
The cult British lifestyle photographer began his career in the Seventies, where he specialised in news and sports photography before concentrating exclusively on the London party scene. Armed with a Porsche and a Nikon camera Benett was one of the hardest-working news photographers in town, reporting on everything from the Brixton riots to high-profile trials at the Old Bailey, to opening nights at West End premieres. By 1987 showbiz reporting entered centre stage and Benett became the Evening Standard’s arts and entertainment photographer, a position he has held ever since.
