Throwback Thursday – Nov 29, 2018

Hair For Days

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | November 29, 2018

Let’s all take a walk down memory lane together. Each Thursday we will be sharing a Damian throwback, whether from a photoshoot or an event. We’d like to kick things off with a throwback to 1995, where we see a long-haired 23 or 24-year-old Damian posing for the camera either just prior to or soon after his performance in Poirot’s Hickory, Dickory, Dock since Damian’s hair was quite long, but not as long, in that television episode.

Visit the throwback gallery here. Enjoy!

Photographing the Famous – Oct 14, 2018

One Button Press, One Camera Shutter Click, and You Get This:

Debbi Clark has had work featured in Vogue, Homme, and Tatler, photographed the likes of Kate Moss and Damian Lewis and set up her own charity. We speak to the woman who’s capable of it all…

When did you become interested in photography?
It was when I was studying fashion and design at St. Martin’s College when I fell in love with photography. I used to photograph landscapes, capturing patterns in trees, flowers, grass picturing shapes, shadows and formations in clouds. I became so obsessed with how fascinating it was playing with light that I wanted to learn the technical side to really bring my images to life. I then went on to LCP and studied photography and printing. My first camera was the Olympus PEN-F 35mm film camera, which I still love and use.

You’ve photographed the likes of Kate Moss, Paul Weller and Damian Lewis. How did your journey into photographing such big names begin?
As a photographer, I love taking portraits. I have been extremely fortunate to have photographed some of the most iconic people in the world, including Kate Moss, Paul Weller, Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory, which began when I founded Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation, a charity that I am CEO of. The charity supports young people by inspiring them in the arts, giving them lifelong skills that they can develop their artistic passions through. I work with many models, actors and singers on commissions, and because I work with them as a professional photographer, I was able to approach many of my artists to ask if they would let me take their portrait and exhibit each year to fundraise for Sir HVH Arts Foundation, supporting my passion in the arts and passing it on to young people to encourage and nurture through the arts.

Of all the people you’ve photographed, what was your most memorable shoot?
I have many memories and stories as each time I take a portrait there is always something that happens to make that portrait so special. I do remember the time when Helen McCrory phoned me and said, “Damian is shaving off the tash, beard and sideburns today.” Being such a passionate advocate and patron of Sir HVH Arts Foundation, Helen McCrory managed to weave her magic, and off I went to take a portrait of Damian Lewis dressed in a blue denim shirt, with his amazing mop of flame colored hair, tash and sideburns. I remember thinking at the time that the ‘Brut 33’ 70’s style clashed with the blue denim, ginger hair and green glass as I stood above Damian shooting directly down from above – what a color contrast. We shot this image within a 30-minute window – as I rushed out to meet Damian at Swiss Cottage on the grass banks of the sports centre, the skies were clouding over and the rain was imminent. I had my Olympus PEN-F and 45mm lens attached and my LEDGO travel light held high above to fill in as daylight for the lack of light as the clouds were darkening up ready to let go. We managed to shoot two fantastic final images and Damian, Helen and I chose this featured photo as the firm favorite.

We have seen some extraordinary performances and GQ Magazine has caught up with some of the best performers from an incredible year of theatre ahead of the March 6th Olivier Award nominations to capture some beautiful photographs in anticipation of it all.

Damian’s performance as Martin Gray, an architect in love with a goat in The Goat Play, was so remarkable, as was Sophie Okonedo equally riveting.  Edward Albee’s revival tragedy ran from March until June, 2017 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London.

If you were unable to see the play, fear not. You can read all about it, each scene broken down and accompanied with photo in, How I Have Fallen for “The Goat, or Who is Sylvia”: A Review by Fan Fun with Damian Lewis.

The 2018 Laurence Olivier Awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. For more information, visit the Official London Theatre website.

To see a full gallery of all the top performers, visit the Olivier Awards Facebook page or Twitter announcement and follow British GQ Magazine on Twitter or Facebook.
