Portraits By Contemporary Photographers
The National Portrait Gallery started collecting contemporary photographs in 1917, but it was not until 1968 that photographs were first displayed on the Gallery walls. The Gallery’s Photographs Collection now consists of around 250,000 portraits.
Every year the Gallery acquires around 300 photographs for the Collection, ranging from the nineteenth century to the present day.
The works in room 39a reflect the broad selection of work by contemporary photographers that the Gallery has recently acquired, often through generous donation.
Photographs from 2011 include award-winning actors Damian Lewis by Spencer Murphy, David Morrissey by Jillian Edelstein and Maxine Peake by Jonathan Oakes. Musicians include nu-folk singer Laura Marling by Ben Toms, the composer Nitin Sawhney by Joss McKinley and singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran by Steve Schofield who also contributed his portrait of crime writer Martina Cole.
Also shown at the Gallery for the first time is Alistair Morrison’s 2011 recreation of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper. Established leading British actors joined Morrison over a twenty-four hour period to build up the group portrait. Robert Powell, best known for the title role in Jesus of Nazareth (1977), portrays Christ.
