    Camera men: the photography of the Douglas Brothers - Clever Boxer

    During the ‘90s, Andrew and Stuart Douglas worked together to capture ethereal images of iconic individuals including Brian Ferry, Tilda Swinton, Damon Albarn and Tim Roth. Meanwhile John Le Carre took them to a hotel bar and pointed out who all the spies were; Marco Pierre White chased them out of his restaurant with a meat cleaver; and Salman Rushdie went AWOL after he took the phone call – during his photo shoot – informing him of the fatwa on his head. As their work goes on show at the National Portrait Gallery, they’ll be discussing how they worked together, survived bust-ups, and barely rescued their archive from a London warehouse demolition.

    Clever Boxer has a small guest list for each of our events. For a free ticket, please email [email protected] and tell us why you'd like to come along.

      From the same photographers:
      Would be nice if there was more from this time period ('91/'92).

      All good photos!
      And certainly the one of Moz!
      That story about John Le Carré is hilarious!
      In this time and age about fakenews, and alternate facts it is a treat to re-read his books and how people can be so cleverly misleading and deceiving. The world of espionage has never been written more accurately.
      Sir Alec Guinness as George Smiley was a character coming alive from the books in the BBC series I saw.
      He was George Smiley.
      Never had that feeling before, nor after from any films or tv-series based on a book.
      Thanks DavidT :thumb:

      That photo is an icon. Everything about it is genius. In 400 years this is what people will be staring at when listening to his golden voice.

      If it's for sale, I'll buy it.

      Great photo. Amazes me when people say they don't/didn't find Morrissey striking to look at. THE coolest guy in the history of music. It's no wonder his face has featured on most of his solo releases.

      "Shoreditch House" lol! Reckon stop living in the past and just get on the mporium uk like all of Steve's staff at the El Segundo office want you to do. The Sunset Marquis would never buy that crap photo and hang it up for veggie taco Tuesday above Uncle Steve's table. Uncle Steve looks constipated.

      This is Morrissey looking constipated.
      Looks like he went out to the woods to take a dump but they asked him to pose for a quick photo first. And his knee is starting to hurt.
