Phil Fisk, the awards’ official photographer, captured the 16 portraits showcased in this exhibition to shine a light on the whole filmmaking process, from famous faces in front of the camera, to the magicians behind the scenes.

Portrait subjects range from actors including David Oyelowo (Selma, Interstellar) and Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to a wide array of behind-the-camera talent including directors Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Tideland) and Stephen Frears, and producer Alison Owen (Elizabeth, Suffragette).

“We shot this at Panavision in LA. I wanted to include shadows of the team around him: the focus puller, the camera assistant, the guy who pushes the dolly. If you take them en masse they’re a kind of six-legged beast.”
