The World
The World's Most Photographed explores the photographic imagery of ten figures from history. By unearthing photographs which have previously been lost, suppressed and hidden, together with more familiar images, this book explores the nature of celebrity and iconography, going beyond the often carefully constructed public image to reveal much more about their personalities and lives. This book demonstrates how well-known or notorious figures - from Queen Victoria to Muhammad Ali - have manipulated the medium with lasting effect and, in the case of Adolf Hitler, with devastating impact.

Accompanying the National Portrait Gallery's popular exhibition and a major ten-part BBC TWO television series, The World's Most Photographed tells the stories of Queen Victoria, Mahatma Gandhi, Adolf Hitler, Greta Garbo, John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, James Dean, Elvis Presley and Muhammad Ali through the creation and manipulation of their image in photographs.
