Show synopsis Celebrated internationally for his dramatic, sexualised, high-impact fashion and portrait photography, British image maker Sean Ellis gives a more panoramic view of his life and work in 365. Shooting on every day of the last year of the millennium, Ellis filled in the gaps between the big production shots he's known for, using his camera for behind-the-scenes perspectives and more informal studies of the models and stars around him, even cataloguing the antics of his dog Kubrick. With an itinerary that takes in Paris, New York, Thailand and New Orleans, and a stellar array of cultural icons including Alexander McQueen, Takeshi Kitano, Bryan Ferry, Elton John, Kate Moss, Milla Jovovich, Stella McCartney and Tim Burton, 365 flicker-books the life of a fast-track image maker and shows his high-powered work while allowing unstaged reality to leak into the portfolio. Shown through a softening filter, 365 is a seductive, revealing visual narrative, elegantly presented by Face and Big designers Lee Swillingham and Stuart Spalding, and complimented by an appreciative foreword from couture provocateur John Galliano.
