The exhibition was presented for the first time in Europe. From the moment of its foundation in 1991, Elton John’s collection of photographs had been exhibited only once, in the High Museum of Art (Atlanta, Georgia, USA).

The exposition consisted of 148 pieces of art by 24 contemporary photographers, selected by Elton John and his partner, David Furnish. The list of artists, whose works were presented in the PinchukArtCentre, included David LaChapelle, Nan Goldin, Zhang Huan, Sam Taylor Wood, Rineka Dijkstra, Loretta Lux, Ruud Van Empel, Hiroshi Sugimoto and others.
