Anyone who is anyone knows Dave Benett. Omnipresent at fabulous parties, he's shot everyone from Paris Hilton at her 21st birthday to Liz Hurley in that Versace safety pin dress on the arm of Hugh Grant. His friendly face has been on London's societal party scene since the 1980s and has gained the utmost trust of supermodels, A-list actors and the Royal Family during his 40-year career. To celebrate this milestone anniversary, Benett is set to open an exhibition of his works at JD Malat Gallery in Mayfair, choosing his favourite moments out of over 1 million images in his archive. In his own words the space will be filled with, 'pictures that are very familiar to people and in the back of their minds, have wondered who took them'.
