Murray Close

Internationally renowned photographer Murray Close has forged his career capturing crucial stills of the world of film. Making a name for himself as the ‘first-call’ for Hollywood’s influential directors; Close has been the creating hand of cinema’s iconic images. The demands of work drove Close to move from his home base in England to Los Angeles in 1991. It was here that he set up his studio and fine tuned the art of portraiture. Close then moved to Prague in 2001 and set up services for location filming in Europe. Close remains at the forefront of the film industry, shooting blockbusters such as Harry Potter and Indiana Jones and working with directors including Spielberg and Eastwood. Close opened the world of cult British cinema with the never-before-seen photographs from the set of Withnail and I displayed at Proud Chelsea in the Spring of 2010.
