Getty Images Gallery is exhibiting a selection of pictures from its huge Hulton Archive, each telling its own story and forming a wider narrative on the history of photography.

Jewels of the Archive is a diverse exhibition, with celebrity portraiture, fashion shoots and curiosities bookending historical events, including some very early photos.

The exhibition runs from 13 June to 6 September 2014 at Getty Images Gallery in central London, just a stone's throw away from Oxford Circus. Admission is free.
