Picture of the Week, November 28, 2013

Can we rave some more about the work of David Cooper or do we just need for you to look at this photo for Belfry's A Tender Thing (with Clare Coulter as Juliet and Peter Anderson as Romeo)? Cooper always works in exquisite complicity with designers (especially lighting), actors and captured moments from the text. There is nothing either staged or - especially - stagey about this photo. What is caught is the passion that still resides in the souls of an aged couple; the bed tells us this, Ms Coulter's open robe tells us this and Mr. Anderson's kneeling pose tells us this. Again and again Cooper redefines theatre photography.
