About

This 1982 photograph, featuring Han Solo (Harrison Ford) holding a gun, on a Brown monochromatic shot, was taken on the set of Lucas Studios, London, UK for the original Star Wars Movie: Return of the Jedi (1983). In 1982 George Lucas commissioned photographer Brian Griffin to shoot portraits of the “Return of the Jedi” stars. For his payment, Lucas granted Griffin reproduction rights to 11 Star Wars images. Lucas had a small studio built on the adjacent Estree Studio lot from which Brian could work. The stars would visit the studio in costume between takes or during their lunch breaks. Brian shot some unusual portraits of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Dave Prowse and Peter Mayhew. Brian Griffin is considered “The Photographer of the Decade” 1980-1990 by London’s Guardian newspaper and also as one of the most eminent British photographers of the seventies and eighties. “Life” magazine’s supplement, “The Greatest Photographs of the 80’s,” illustrated this photograph “A Broken Frame,” on its cover. The image was acclaimed as the photograph of the decade 1980-1990. Griffin was chosen by George Lucas as one of three photographers to shoot the “Star Wars” characters at Lucas Studios, London for the 1983 Star Wars movie, “Return of the Jedi.” He was a highly sought-after photographer by band managers and artists themselves, scrambling to book him to produce eye-catching album covers and publicity shots. Griffin invented technical tricks to turn 80’s pop into an edgy visual wonderland. Many of his images are rare vintage prints captured prior to the digital age of photography when technical proficiency and ingenuity was a must. Griffin has won many awards in his carrier as a photographer, including in 2013, the “Centenary Medal” from the Royal Photographic Society, in recognition of a lifetime achievement in photography. Brian Griffin’s photographs are held in the permanent collections of major art institutions including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Arts Council of Great Britain, London; the British Council, London; the National Portrait Gallery, London; the Museum Folkwang, Essen; the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery; the Art Museum Reykjavik, Iceland; the Mast Foundation, Bologna; and the Museu da Imagem, Braga, Portugal.
