Lebrecht Photo Library has received wonderful reviews of an exhibition of John Haynes’ photographs, currently being displayed as part of a show centring on the work of conceptual artist Luke Fowler:
“…The show is worth the visit just to see Haynes’s photo of Samuel Beckett. Sharp as a pin, Beckett’s face hangs against darkness looking more like some fierce bird from a David Attenborough documentary than a mere human being. It is an extraordinary image.” Duncan Macmillan, The Scotsman. Read the full review here.
“[Luke Fowler has] curated a selection of photographic portraits by John Haynes – including powerful renderings of the enigmatic face of Laing – which serve to complement his own works, as well as being beautiful in their own right: it is surprising that this is their first time presented in a fine art setting.” Delle Tomes, The Journal.

Lebrecht Photo Library is very proud to represent John Haynes’ work, including his portraits of Beckett and R.D. Laing. Search online at www.lebrecht.co.uk for more striking photographs by John Haynes of these iconic writers.
