Gelatin silver print by Paul Tanqueray of 'The Torso' by modernist sculptor Walter Vivian Cole.
Paul Tanqueray was born in Sussex and opened his first studio in Kensington in 1925. As London's then youngest photographer, he was in a perfect position to document an era that had become obsessed with youth and modernism. During this time he employed Cecil Beaton as his assistant, until Beaton was taken on by Vogue.
Tanqueray's photographs were selected and hung at the annual London Salon of Photography and once retired, he donated his prints and his negatives to the National Portrait Gallery.
