Sitter in 5 portraits
Artist of 27 portraits
Chandler was one of the leading studio portrait photographers of the 1950s and 1960s, specialising in literary and theatrical subjects. She had her first brush with celebrity working as an extra at various film studios including Pinewood, Denham and Elstree, before a short apprenticeship at the Landseer Photographic Studio in the heart of the West End. This led to a partnership at her own premises in South Molton Street, Mayfair, before moving on to Beauchamp Place. She is celebrated for her official photographs of Harold MacMillan, taken in 1960 when she was only 31.
