(United Kingdom , 1958 - )
Biography
Simon Annand
Passionate for the theatre from early on, Simon Annand joined the Lyric Theater of London as a barman at a very young age. During rehearsals he walked around behind the scenes, always prepared to help, with a camera in hand.
His first photographs—personal works—were so strong that they immediately drew theater actors and producers' attention. He gradually became one of the official photographers for the National Theater and for 25 years the photographer has been working with most of the leading companies, including the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, The Royal Court, Comédie Française, Odeon Theatre Paris, Moscow Arts Theatre, Théâtre de Complicité and The Old Vic, West End Theaters, Glyndebourne Opera House, Almeida Theater, Lyric Hammersmith, Gate Theater, Bush Theater, Tricycle Theater, Cheek by Jowl and many more. He is also a regular contributor to publications such as the Guardian, the BBC, the Sunday Times, and Marie-Claire.
