British photographer, Andy Gotts, MBE will join forces with BAFTA to put on a special exhibition Behind the Mask at Somerset House, London from 20th January to 7th February. The collection showcases over 100 portraits of actors who have won or been nominated for a BAFTA since 1954. I suggest you take a look at Andy Gotts’ website as well as the press release because I cannot put into words how significant this exhibition really is – a real treat for whoever gets to see it!
