Simon Annand: The Half.

Celebrity portraiture normally leaves me cold. Peacocks posing so what? I've had to change my opinion in light of THE HALF exhibition at THE LOWRY. Simon Annan has spent 20 years photographing actors backstage in London's West End during 'The Half', the half hour before the curtains go up.
This is a real tour de force with some stunning Black & white portraits beautifully printed and plenty of them. For me they hark back to a time gone by, they have a classic feel and they are non the worse for that.
If you get a chance go and see It's on until 3rd January.
