In 1993, I was commissioned by H.M Tower of London to creatively photograph the Crown Jewels. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, I will be giving an illustrated talk at Scarborough Art Gallery on June 7th.
I spent 12 weeks working in intensive conditions in the Tower of London after the public had left for the day. The pictures were used in a souvenir brochure published by the Historic Royal Palaces Agency to mark the move of the Coronation Regalia to a new Jewel House in the Tower in January 1994.
I will be showing some original photographs, and will talk about the behind-the-scenes secrets of the shoot – including the particular challenges of photographing the world’s largest diamond. Please call the gallery to book a place.
