Martin Freeman (The Office, The Hobbit trilogy) photographed by Sarah Dunn for a photo series on contemporary icons. The series formed part of a photo essay that was published in the official brochure given to guests attending the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards in 2013.
Dunn has an extensive knowledge of photography history and often references work gone past, and this image of Martin Freeman is synonymous with Irving Penn’s Corner portraits.
The photograph is part of a new exhibition, The Director’s Cut: BAFTA Photography 2006–2016, curated by BAFTA Photography Director Janette Dalley. The exhibition shows a selection of Janette’s favourite images commissioned by BAFTA in her time as director.

About the Photographer
British born Sarah Dunn received her first camera on her 8th birthday and has never looked back. Her professional career was launched in 1998 after a helping hand from Ewan McGregor and Cate Blanchett, both of whom contributed to Sarah's first professional portfolio.
Sarah’s love of cinema has always been the driving force behind her work making the BAFTA collaboration a unique, insightful and very fulfilling project. When Sarah was selected to photograph entrepreneurs by The National Portrait Gallery in London it began a long running relationship. They are the only gallery to hold her archive.
