Original Photograph by Brian Griffin

About

Born in Birmingham in 1948, Brian Griffin is one of England’s most influential and creative portrait photographers. He studied at Manchester Polytechnic’s School of Photography, where he first discovered a multitude of artistic movements to influence his work. Brian’s work draws influences as diverse as Renaissance masters, through to Symbolism and Surrealism, with ‘film noir’ lighting often used in conjunction. In 2011 Brian was commissioned to produce a major exhibition to launch Marseille-Provence 2013 European Capital of Culture and his work can be viewed in numerous permanent collections in museums throughout the UK. This image was part of a series of work done in 2004 in Stratford. Royal Photographic Society member Brian Griffin has made 165 portraits of the workers and managers involved in the construction of Britain’s first high speed railway. The construction of the channel tunnel rail link from St Pancreas in London has taken nine years to construct, with 8,000 people working over 50 million hours to build it.
