Shooting Stars: Carinthia West, Britain and America in the 1970s

New exhibition for 2021 – opening 21 May 2021

A series of rare behind the scenes photographs of the world’s most iconic rock stars and actors during the 1970’s are to be exhibited at The American Museum & Gardens in Bath.

Shooting Stars runs from 21st May to 31st October, and features a collection of 63 intimate natural portraits and lifestyle shots taken in America and the UK by 70’s model, actress and ‘It Girl’, Carinthia West. 

The photographs, some of which have not been exhibited before, document the era, as well as her close personal friendships with the likes of Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, George Harrison, Eric Idle, Shelley Duvall, Helen Mirren, Neil Young,  and Anjelica Huston, as they enjoyed life away from the limelight.
