Angela Williams

 

   Angela has been a photographer since 1960. Working for iconic British fashion photographer, Norman Parkinson, Angela spent a lot of time in the USA, capturing glorious images of Hollywood icons, such as Paul Newman, Barbra Streisand and Audrey Hepburn.

Pink Floyd

In 1966, in the UK, a young relatively unknown band called Pink Floyd, featuring their charismatic frontman Syd Barrett, came back to Angela’s flat after a gig. To the delight of their fans worldwide, Angela has beautiful images taken in her kitchen of the four-piece band as they were over 50 years ago.

In the 70s and 80s, Angela lectured at the prestigious Bath Academy of Art in Corsham. In 1985, the Royal Photographic Society gave her their Silver Award for portraiture, as well as making her an associate. In the late eighties, she was asked to be a judge for their Licentiateship Awards.

More recently, Angela has curated many exhibitions in the UK and Europe of Norman Parkinson’s work, owning the rights to many of his celebrated images. These, and some of the best of her own work can be found in her book, ‘Angela Williams Archive’.

It is with great pride and delight that Angela has joined RPC.
