A SELLING EXHIBITION: BENINI 10 X 10

Art & Sculpture 3 Oct 2017

SHARE THIS:

For more than four decades, photographer Bruno Benini captured images of elegance and contemporaneity for the fashion forward and sartorial classicists alike.  When he picked up his camera in the 1950s little did he realise that he was creating a valuable visual archive of Australia’s cultural and social history that would join those of his post-war peers Wolfgang Sievers and Helmut Newton in its significance.

Leonard Joel, in collaboration with Hazel Benini, is excited to announce the very special release of 10 large format photographs from the Benini Estate in a limited edition of ten in this inaugural selling exhibition.

Selling Exhibition | 11-20 October 2017
