I’m delighted to say that my portrait of actor Kenneth Cranham has been selected by Holborn Studios to be part of their 40th Anniversary photographic and film exhibition this June. This image will be exhibited alongside some very iconic names in professional photography from the past 40 years so it’s a big honour. It was shot as pre-publicity for his role in Florian Zellers’ play “The Father”, which takes an emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia. Cranham won an Olivier Award for this performance.
Sorting through and updating folio images today I came across this shot of actor Dexter Fletcher, who took over directing duties from Bryan Singer on “Bohemian Rhapsody” and has just directed the Elton John biopic “Rocketman”
First tasters from this morning’s shoot. Ken Cranham plays The Father by Florian Zeller, in a new adaptation by Christopher Hampton for The Theatre Royal, Bath.
The brief was for an enigmatic shot portraying Andre’s descent into Alzheimers….
I had the privilege of photographing Rik for some theatre pre-publicity a few months after his accident. He had to concentrate so hard that he asked me to clear the set, which we did. After that it was pure magic.
