A series of rare black and white photographs of Angelina Jolie, then a 20-year-old rising star, have gone on sale at a gallery in London. The stunning photographs were taken for US Elle in 1995 by Kate Garner, who looks back on the shoot fondly, recalling that the up-and-coming actress "was quiet and incredibly intense, but... also very gentle and extremely creative".

When the photographs were taken, Angelina had already starred in the cult 1995 film Hackers, but had yet to win her Oscar for 1999's Girl, Interrupted or become the huge Hollywood star she is today. However, she evidently had an innate sense of how to present herself, with Garner recalling that "Angelina explored different poses without much direction from me - including tying her legs together for what would become one of the most unique shots of her to ever be taken. She wasn't afraid to experiment and be creative, which made for some absolutely beautiful photos."

The photographs are on display now at Zebra One gallery in London's Hampstead. The gallery is selling 50 prints of each photograph, priced at £1,800 per print.
