Chorus of Light: Celebrity Portraits from the Sir Elton John Collection will be presented from June 16 till August 12, according to an UNIAN correspondent.


Viktor Pinchuk said the exhibits are on their way to Kiev.


During the event, there are plans to step up security measures.

 As PinchukArtCentre pointed out, Each work price starts from thousands of dollars and some of them a million.That is why he takes all the security measures under his control.


Besides, they expect the luminary himself to attend the opening.


Elton began collecting pictures in 1991. As of today, his collection is recognised as one of the best in the world, more than five thousand pieces, ranging from vintage photos of 1920s to modern photographers works.


The first and only time the public saw these photos was seven years ago at Atlanta's High Museum. Ukrainians will be the first in Europe, who will see this collection.


The PinchukArtCentre display will include 150 chosen works of 24 modern photographers.


Chorus of Light: Celebrity Portraits from the Sir Elton John Collection will be the fourth exhibition, which will take place in the centre since its opening in September 2006.
