Is this the most nostalgic Instagram account ever? Never-before-seen celebrity images from the 90's revealed

You might not recognise photographer Dave Benett's name but you'll definitely know the people he's taken pictures of.

The legendary snapper, who has worked for the likes of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Tatler, has recently revealed his back catalogue of iconic images from the Nineties on his Instagram page, by making it accessible to the public. 

Included in his bumper of shots are the likes of Kate Moss, Sadie Frost and Jude Law, Naomi Campbell, Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow and Princess Diana, to name a few. 

Snaps also include the iconic photo of Liz Hurley in that black Versace dress, at the Four Weddings and a Funeral premiere in 1994.

Benett began his career in the Seventies, specialising in news and sports photography before concentrating exclusively on the London party scene. While Benett began his Instagram page in October 2014, it wasn't until his daughter suggested that he open it up to the public.

“It was my daughter Camille - who is now my creative director - who persuaded me to give the public access to these images. Many of them have never been seen before and it seems that suddenly people are taking notice of my Instagram,” said the photographer.

"People have forgotten that to take a great picture requires access - access is where the greatest images come from,” he continued.

And the best thing about it is that he's still posting his snaps up. Follow him here @davebenett.
