Yes, today Kate Moss turns 40! And to celebrate artist and journalist, Russell Marshall, has launched a retrospective dedicated to portraits of the model, who’s career has spanned over 20 years. ‘The retrospective has been produced from my perspective,’ he explains. ‘Kate’s been in the public eye as long as I’ve been working in the newspaper industry, so I’ve seen countless images of her appear on the picture desk.’
The exhibition includes some of the most iconic photographs of Moss ever taken, among them several that have come from newspaper archives and been reworked by the artist. Starting with early portraits of the future supermodel as a 14-year-old, the exhibition, at the Imitate Modern gallery in Marylebone, charts her progress from ingénue to icon.
