Jeremy was interviewed at the Art Market Budapest opening and it aired on Hungarian radio: http://hangtar.radio.hu/kossuth

Magyar Radio- What captures you?

Jeremy Irons- It’s very personal I think what captures you in art. The great thing about this show is the different artists. That so many different artists’ work are exhibited so I would be very surprised if somebody wouldn’t find a piece that he likes. It’s fantastic even if sometimes the meaning of two objects next to each other is completely different. It’s true that there’s only one or two objects from the same artist, but you get inspired. For example, I saw a painting from this artist from Budapest and I’ll ask for further information about where I could find more of his works. So, I hope that everyone who has an opportunity, not only from Hungary, but from Austria, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia will come and see these pictures and will find something they like. What that thing is is personal. I was captured by a picture because it was created in such a beautiful style. There are colours in it and it tells a story, it conveys a feeling. But my taste is not everybody else’s.

Magyar Radio- I was wondering if artists can be distinguished on the basis of where they are coming from. Which country or region?

Jeremy Irons- No, I don’t think you can identify their origin. If you see the pictures in the National Gallery here in Budapest, you will see something similar as in Prague. You can feel some Central European effect that you won’t meet in Paris or London at artists from the same age. Maybe the approach was more romantic. But as for modern artwork, it’s very difficult to distinguish. Perhaps, there’s some kind of humour in the Central European art that you can’t find in the same form in Western Europe. Humour I like.

Magyar Radio- Working here you perhaps gained some personal experience about this mentality?

Jeremy Irons- Yes, to a certain extent. And I am very happy that I could experience it.

Jeremy Irons Photographed for 31thirtyone Project

31thirtyone is a charitable photographic project with the aim to take 31 portraits in as many days. this year, all the photographs will take place during august. this will prove to be not only a logistical, but a photographic challenge too.

the resulting photographs will be put together as a physical and online exhibition, running concurrently later in the year. there will be a limited number of prints of each portrait, plus a special one-off signed, mounted & framed copy, which will be put on public auction.

all proceeds from these sales will be donated to this year’s nominated charity – crohns & colitis UK (NACC)

Here’s what photographer Matt Humphrey had to say in his blog about his photo shoot with Jeremy and Sinead:
” full of surprises
August 23, 2010

last week finished on an absolute high, after successfully fitting in 3 sittings on the friday to take my tally to 19. the late addition of jeremy irons was a great surprise, and a fantastic addition to the project. he and sinead cusack were also wonderful hosts when i visited their home in the country and, having made my trip out there, they made sure i returned not only with some great shots but laden with supplies for the journey and a bag full of vegetables! the whole experience was such a pleasure, and one that i feel honoured to have shared with them. ”

Jeremy Irons in Brian Griffin Photo Exhibition

A life in portrait: Brian Griffin’s latest collection

Friday, 1 October 2010

In the early Seventies, the photographer Brian Griffin began his career taking shots of businessmen for Management Today magazine. His approach, as you may deduce from the images here, was rather unconventional.

Now he is among the most revered portrait photographers of his generation, capturing the likes of Kate Bush, Ringo Starr, Iggy Pop and Helen Mirren. Pictured here are the actor Jeremy Irons, French fashion designer André Courrèges, the unkempt locks of Queen’s Brian May, the actor Donald Sutherland, and the fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood.

“Face to Face”, which opens outside Snow Hill Station in Birmingham today, showcases 38 years of Griffin’s portraiture; from iconic portraits of leading musicians, politicians and celebrities to shots of ordinary people. It was to Snow Hill that Griffin commuted for three years while working in a local factory, the job that was to trigger his departure to photography school in 1969.

A further two Griffin exhibitions will also open in the city today: “Team”, an award-winning 2006 commission depicting the people that built Britain’s first high-speed railway, and “The Water People” a commission for Reykjavik Energy, a semi-mythical portrayal of adventure across the Icelandic landscape. The works in the exhibitions will eventually be donated to Birmingham Central Library.

Brian Griffin said: “I am a boy from the Black Country, born in Birmingham. For that reason the city has always been close to my heart.”

The Half: Photographs of Actors Preparing for the Stage

For 25 years actors have given Simon Annand unprecedented access to photograph them during the thirty minutes before curtain up, known as ‘the half’. These rare images show the myriad ways actors focus for the performance ahead and offer a dazzling gallery of our most celebrated actors.
