Lord Snowdon (Antony Charles Robert Armstrong-Jones) was a British photographer and filmmaker. As the husband of Princess Margaret from 1960 to 1978, he was granted the title Earl of Snowdon (Lord Snowdon). In the early 1960s, he became the artistic adviser of The Sunday Times, and by the 1970s he established himself as one of Britain's most respected photographers. Though his work included everything from fashion photography to documentary images of inner-city life and the mentally ill, he is best known for his portraits of world notables, many of them published in magazines like Vogue, The Sunday Telegraph and Vanity Fair. He photographed celebrities such as Marlene Dietrich, David Bowie, Elizabeth Taylor and Rupert Everett among others. More than 280 of his photographs are in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery.

Pictures from a photo session in 1984 with Tina Turner were used in many publications and magazines like Rock Express.
