Pictures of the Year, 2013

[Over 13 days, from December 20-January 2, we will be publishing the best live performance photos or promo shots of the year. We began choosing them by considering the 50 Pictures of the Week we published in 2013. The most difficult decisions involved cutting that down to ten photos and two runners-up. However when it came to deciding Picture of the Year, which we'll reveal January 2, the decision was obvious almost from the moment we originally published the photo. As we show you each photo in this holiday series, we will also share with you what we wrote about it at the time. Enjoy! [and help us spread the word about this magnificent art form: performing arts photography!]

Lordie, photographer Cylla von Tiedemann is good. We have seen so, so many photos of so, so many productions of Waiting For Godot, but this one of Tom Rooney in the present Stratford presentation captures the beauty of the work (and design), its absurd humour and the bleakness of Samuel Beckett's central theme.
