Love nosing around back stage at the theatre - Simon Annand's The Half, a series of photos of actors in the half an hour before they go on stage is a permanent resident on the coffee table.
Curtain Call: A Year Back Stage In London Theatre is a new book - and the first of a series - in which photographer Matt Humphrey has been given access to nearly 60 theatre productions in 2015/16 to capture what goes on. Stars such as Nicole Kidman, Kristen Scott Thomas, Damian Lewis, Imelda Staunton, Mark Rylance, James McAvoy and Mark Strong all feature.
Have been given a taster and these are some of favourites:
Dervla Kirwen, Mr Foote's Other Leg, Hampstead Theatre. Photo by Matt Humphrey - Curtain Call (2016).
The book is published on March 28, it is £45 and is available to pre-order from CurtainCall.com My birthday is coming up in May so if you want to club together and get me one...just a suggestion.
