Description

"London Theatres...will surely feature on any theatre buff's present list."


Auteur

One of the country’s most respected drama critics, Michael Coveney has written about theatre for over three decades, as staff critic on the Financial Times, Observer and Daily Mail. His books include a history of the Glasgow Citizens Theatre and biographies of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Dame Maggie Smith.

PETER DAZELEY FRPS, known as Dazeley, is a celebrated London photographer renowned for fine art and advertising  photography. He was born in West Kensington and studied photography at Holland Park School, now known as the Socialist Eton.  Being dyslexic he left school at 15 without any formal qualifications.  He feels his dyslexia is an asset because it gives him the ability to look at problems and objectives from a different point of view; he is a meticulous planner and imaginative problem solver. "Making the ordinary look extraordinary is Dazeley's gift,” says Sarah Ryder Richardson, who represents Dazeley in the UK.

His work has won many awards from organisations across the world, including the Association of Photographers and the Royal Photographic Society in the UK, EPICA in France, Applied Arts Magazine in Canada, and Graphis Inc. in the USA . Dazeley is one of the few modern photographers whose fine art work is produced as platinum prints and is currently working on several fine art projects out of his own studio complex in Chelsea, London.

Dazeley became a member of the Association of Photographers in 1977 and became a life member in 1984. In June 2013 he was awarded a Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society. Fellowship is the highest distinction of the RPS and recognizes original work and outstanding ability. He is married and has a daughter and a son; they live in Coombe Hill, Surrey.

Mark Rylance is an actor who recently appeared as Thomas Cromwell in the BBC's Wolf Hall. He is also a trustee of the Shakespearean Authorship Trust and an Honorary Bencher of The Middle Temple Hall. He was the Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre for ten years and wrote the play I Am Shakespeare.
