Andy Gotts: Behind the Actors Mask


BBC News – Andy Gotts: Behind the actors mask.

Andy Gotts has been photographing celebrities for more than two decades, often in black and white, but always with imagination and an ability to bring out an aspect of the character of the sitter.

His most recent project, Behind the Mask, has seen him travelling the globe to photograph more than 100 actors and actresses who have won or been nominated for a Bafta (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award during the past 50 years.

Here’s a selection of the pictures, which are on show at Somerset House in London, from 20 January to 7 February, together with the photographer’s own comments.
