While Iâ€™m not a fan of celebrity-type magazines I am a fan of great portraiture and I must admit I did pick up an old edition of Practical Photography Magazine (May 2005) when I read the tagline,â€œStunning Portraits of the Rich and Famous,â€ on the cover but only because that was followed up with these three words â€“ by Nigel Parry.
I simply canâ€™t hold it against Nigel Parry that his subjects are some of hollywoodâ€™s most elite. ( including Dustin Hoffman, Johnny Depp, Bruce Willis, Kiera Knightly, Renee Zellweger and the late Richard Harris.) Iâ€™ve tried. Really. But heâ€™s just too good.
