Fragile Beauty at the V&A Museum

May 26

NAKED BODY (1991), from the ‘NEW DEMOCRATIC PICTURES’ by Gilbert & George.

Currently on view at the V&A Museum in the exhibition Fragile Beauty: Photographs from the Sir Elton John and David Furnish Collection.

The exhibition celebrates Sir Elton John and David Furnish’s passion for photography and reflects their personal taste and unique eye as collectors. Across eight thematic sections, Fragile Beauty explores themes such as fashion, reportage, celebrity, the male body, and American photography.

“Since we first loaned a selection of Horst photographs to the V&A in 2014, our relationship with the museum has grown significantly. Fragile Beauty takes our collaboration to really exciting new heights, showcasing some of the most beloved photographers and iconic images from within our collection. Working alongside the V&A again has been a truly memorable experience, and we look forward to sharing this exhibition with the public.”
