Lord Snowdon has died, the celebrity photographer, documentarian and former husband of Britain’s Princess Margaret, the Queen’s sister. Born Antony Armstrong-Jones, the first commoner to marry a king’s daughter in 400 years, his photos of luminaries like Charlie Chaplin, Marlene Dietrich, Laurence Olivier, Sophia Loren and assorted royals were widely admired and commercially successful, but he also shot a variety of Londoners, including children, elders, artists and the mentally ill. The National Portrait Gallery has collected over a hundred of his pictures. (Press Association)
