Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon (British, 1930-2017)

Known for his extravagance and bravado, Armstrong-Jones was a prominent portrait photographer married to Princess Margaret of the British Royal Family. He primarily undertook portraits of famous socialites and actors. In Keith Mitchell in “The Death of Satan,” Armstrong-Jones hides one actor’s face in shadow while another emerges into the light, creating a dramatic effect.

Born to a well-to-do family, Armstrong-Jones was first exposed to photography at Cambridge University. He then apprenticed to a British court photographer before establishing his own studio in the Pimco district of London and becoming the court photographer for the royal family.
