John Swannell's reputation as one of the biggest names in British photography is no accident, his consistently inventive work and unerring professionalism having kept him in demand by press and public for over 35 years. Our retrospective show will include over 60 of John Swannell's pictures, juxtaposing classic images with lesser-known, more intimate portraits and those new to the public eye. John's witty approach to portraiture gives us national darling Joanna Lumley like a latter day Cruella de Vil, a combative looking Queen Elizabeth II guarding the banqueting hall at Windsor Castle, Spike Milligan distinctly unamused in his back garden, Sir John Gielgud leaping into the air at eighty, and many more unusual and insightful portraits.
