Jack Cardiff’s life as a cinematographer has spanned more than 80 years, and has won him Oscars for his outstanding work on over one hundred films and his ‘exceptional’ contributions to the moving picture industry. Jack’s catalogue of films includes the Oscar-winning Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes, The African Queen and Rambo II.
Throughout his hugely successful career in the film industry Jack has worked with some of Hollywood’s most beautiful women. He was inspired by them to preserve some of that beauty not on moving film this time, but through still portraits. We have selected for Chartfords a handful of Jack’s portraits, taken over 50 years ago, which have rarely been exhibited to the public.

USA born Taylor Young has been passionate about art and illustration for as long as he can remember. That inclination then incorporated design and graphic design. From there he discovered photography, Upon graduation from university in 2004 he began working in a corporate environment, though he has received accolades for his work, there was, for him, something missing.
That something was photographic art, it was when he was behind the lens that he found total enjoyment, and fulfilment, in his work. Thus, he decided to take the plunge and dedicate himself full-time to photographic art.
His philosophy is very simple: Provide the people with more than what they asked for or would expect, whether he is shooting portraits, landscapes or architecture, he constantly strives for perfection in order to ensure that his work stands out and looks their very best.
