Portraits & Personalities: Some would say that John Robert Young is at his best when photographing people, whether a beautiful woman, a religious leader or international statesman. Portraying the fragile reality of human nature has always fascinated him.

His discreet and unobtrusive way of working endeared him to all his subjects - the famous, the glamorous and the saintly.
