If iconic photos of the 20th century are your thing, then you can’t go past the one and only James Dean. Perfect for any movie room or study, the frame titled ‘James Dean: A Giant Star’ features the American actor leaning against his movie trailer on the set of his last film, ‘Giant’. Broody, moody and the epitome of cool, Dean is seen smoking a cigarette and looking off into the distance.

Rock and roll more your thing? How about an intimate portrait of The Rolling Stones frontman, Mick Jagger mid boogie? Shot by renowned American photographer Michael Ochs in London 1968, the piece would take pride of place on any rock fans wall and captures the now ageing icon in his prime. Want two icons in one? Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry with the Hollywood sign in the background is another of Ochs’ works and perfectly captures not only the singer but her Californian surrounds.
