Simon Annand: The Half

Categories:

Date: 
Saturday, 7 September 2019

A major new photography exhibition by world renowned photographer Simon Annand will present rare images of the privacy actors experience backstage in the half hour before performing on the stage – the intense transformation from everyday life that is completely hidden from the audience. To celebrate their 25th anniversary as a prestigious multi-arts organisation, The Half opens this September at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield.

One of the UK’s leading portrait photographers who has photographed the most recognisable faces of stage, including Cate Blanchett, Judi Dench, Daniel Craig and Jude Law, Simon Annand will showcase 74 photographs that have never been seen before of stars such as David Tennant, Helen Mirren, Lily James, Stephen Fry and more. Captured right at the beginning of their careers, these actors and actresses have gone on to play the most famous stages.
