The Half

For 25 years, theatre photographer Simon Annand have been allowed by stage actors into their inner sanctum before they go onstage. He has captured these sacred moments taken during final half hour before curtain time called "the half". His photos are now on exhibit at the Idea Generation Gallery in Shoreditch, London until August 2012.

Above left is a photo of Cate Blanchett in Plenty at the Albery Theatre in 2000 and on the right, a very young Colin Firth in The Lonely Road at The Old Vic in 1995. To view a slideshow of other actors like Tilda Swinton, Daniel Radcliffe and David Tennant, please click here.
