Picture of The Week, August 1, 2013

Cylla von Tiedemann's shot for Soulpepper's ambitious Angels in America is perhaps one of the sexiest photos we've ever seen. Look closely. Actor Mike Ross is closing in for a kiss, his eyes cast downward at actor Gregory Prest's lips even as his own lips are slightly parted. This is a moment of high suspense we all know and that von Tiedemann has captured it - and Ross's frightening vulnerability - is an achievement above and beyond the composition which, as usual for the astounding Ms von Tiedemann, is beyond reproach.
