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. He has always preferred to photograph his subjects against their own familiar surroundings - George Adamson in Kenya, Albert Schweitzer at his jungle hospital in Lambarene, Lady Arabella De La Warr at her home in Sussex. His discreet and unobtrusive way of working endeared him to all his subjects - the famous, the glamorous and the saintly.
