Queen Elizabeth II: A Photographic Portrait

A photographic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, from her first official photograph as a baby in 1926 to the present day. It captures the Queen in a variety of poses, from formal photographs as a working monarch, to intimate portraits relaxing with her family at Balmoral and Windsor; as well as a specially arranged sitting by Lord Snowdon for the book’s release.

I authored the introductory essay “Who is the Queen? The Role of Photography in Defining a Monarch”

I also curated an exhibition of the same title from the Camera Press archives which coincided with the book’s launch and was on show at Proud Central in London.

In 2023, following the Queen’s death, a revised edition was published in both the UK and the USA which included my updated foreword.
