    Eamonn McCabe: Heston Blumenthal

We love Eamonn McCabe's portraits of famous artists in their studios!

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Rarely has a photographer portrayed artists in such a friendly manner as Eamonn McCabe in his series of portraits of artists in their studios. Eamonn has been working as a freelance photographer since 1976 and has broken a record by being crowned Sports Photographer of The Year four times! His ability to bring a welcoming, friendly view on all matter of subjects has earned him not only a place in the Guinness Book of Records but also a few spots in the National Portrait Gallery, where you can currently see a few of his images, in particular his portrait of Sarah Lucas which is being displayed as part of the 2013 Taylor Wessing Prize.

As well as his unbelievable sport photography, another of Eamonn’s personal projects is entitled Writer’s Rooms and allows us to see inside the rooms where some of the most important fiction of all time has been conceived — fascinating.
