Remembering Paul Newman at Proud Camden, autumn 2009

Posted: 3rd September 2009

While we're used to rock and pop-star-studded exhibitions showing at the Proud galleries, such as the Queen retrospective currently at Proud Central, this month Proud Camden drifts away from its musical comfort zone to concentrate on a movie star of sort in the late Paul Newman (gone too soon last September).

One year after his unfortunate demise Proud hosts 'Remembering Paul Newman', an unseen series of pics taken by Hollywood producer/celeb snapper Leo Fuchs. Shot between 1960 and 1963, this collection shows Newman in intimate contexts, such as visiting Israel with wife Joanne Woodward while on location for Otto Preminger's 1960 film, 'Exodus', as well as showing off his fab body by an Hollywood swimming pool and walking his dog in gay Paris. Some might wonder who cares, as it happened ages ago and not to them, but for these eyes so blue, 'Remembering Paul Newman' is worth bothering.

It opens today, September 3rd until October 23rd, and entry is free.
