Hanging Out at Heathrow Airport

The modern relationship between celebs and the paparazzi is a curiously reciprocal arrangement not unlike signing a pact with Old Nick himself. We have to wonder quite who would want to be a celebrity these days as it is beyond us here at VoEA. We prefer a quiet life, a cup of tea and the sound of vinyl crackling warmly on the record player.

Back in the era we like to call home it seemed to be much simpler and more straightforward situation when paps and celebs came together: agent tips off photographers of impeding celeb arrival, celeb arrives at airport or other similar destination, photos get taken, everyone happy.

As the UK’s busiest airport (and the world’s third most used) Heathrow airport has always been a favoured hangout for photographers waiting for their prey.

Here we see a number of sixties and seventies celebrities as they arrive back from holiday / concert abroad / glamorous film festival (delete as appropriate). You should be able to guess who they are but if you’re not sure then drop us a line and we’ll do our best to help.
