From Prince rocking out on stage to Kate Winslet posing on the red carpet, these dazzling photos capture the spirit and glamour of the world’s most famous people.
They are the work of British photographer Dave Hogan, who has spent the last 40 years documenting celebrity antics at sold-out concerts, A-list events and backstage parties around the world.
Hailed by Sir Bob Geldof as a ‘superb’ photographer, he has photographed some of the most iconic names from the entertainment industry including Sir Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Madonna and Prince.
More recently he has snapped Beyonce, Adele and the Duchess of Cambridge.
The pictures are part of a new exhibition, Hogie’s Heroes, which has been organised by Concorde Media and will take place in the Trafalgar St James hotel from February 1 to February 28 and is free of charge.
A number of prints will be signed by the celebrities and sold on eBay from February 18 to the end of the exhibition with the funds benefiting three charities: Teenage Cancer Trust, The Haven + London and Cancer Research UK.
