Project Description

Photographs from the set of the cult classic movie Withnail & I by award winning photographer Murray Close.

In 1986 Murray Close was invited to shoot the cast and crew during filming of Withnail & I. The resulting images were a joyous and revealing collection. The film opened to a small but devoted audience in 1987 and 30 years on has remained a cult classic.

London-based photographer, Murray Close, started his career working for Stanley Kubrick on ‘The Shining’ in 1978. Forging a career as a renowned stills and specialist photographer, close established strong links with the film industry early on working with an array of directors and filmmakers including Clint Eastwood and Steven Spielberg.

Close relocated to Los Angeles in 1989. It was during this time that he worked on films such as, ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Mission Impossible’, creating some of cinema’s most iconic images. In 2003 Close was invited back to London by Alfonso Cuarónto contribute to ‘Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban’ and two subsequent Harry Potter productions.
Following this Lionsgate invited him to collaborate on the entire ‘Hunger Games’ films in 2011 and most recently Close has reunited with Jennifer Lawrence for the 2018 film ‘Red Sparrow.’

Close was awarded the Society Of Camera Operators Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.
