Deutsche Kinemathek

I had an early Christmas present when I heard a few weeks ago that one of my photographs had been chosen to illustrate an exhibition catalogue for the Deutsche Kinemathek in Berlin. The Deutsche Kinamathek was founded in 1963 and holds a national archive of some 13,000 German and foreign films, together with a host of supporting material such as film stills and programs. The archive also supports a rolling programme of temporary exhibitions.

The present exhibition features the work of film production designer Ken Adams, the British designer whose work included the sets of Dr Strangelove, Dr No and Moonraker. I’m privileged to have the photograph below form part of the catalogue of this exhibition. The photograph was taken spontaneously early one morning in April 2012 with a hand-held compact camera. I was travelling through Westminster station, it was relatively deserted and it just demanded to be photographed. More photographs from the same series can be seen in My Portfolio.
