About

Opening on 7 September 2019 at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, The Half celebrates their 25th anniversary as a prestigious multi-arts organisation in Huddersfield.

One of the UK’s leading portrait photographers who has photographed the most recognisable faces of stage, including Cate Blanchett, Judi Dench, Daniel Craig and Jude Law, Simon Annand will showcase 74 photographs that have never been seen before of stars such as David Tennant, Helen Mirren, Lily James, Stephen Fry and more. Captured right at the beginning of their careers, these actors and actresses have gone on to play the most famous stages.

Simon Annand’s reputation for vividly striking photographs and his ability to capture honest and diverse moments on stage has enabled him to gain unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the world’s most prestigious venues from the National Theatre to the Royal Court, and further afield to Moscow Arts Theatre and the Comédie Française, making him one of the most in-demand theatre photographers.
